Each day in New York, thousands of people get on buses as they are traveling to their destinations. The people who use buses each day are varied, and they use buses for many different reasons. Some people use MTA buses to get to work and back home. Some people are tourists using buses to see the city. School buses are used to transport children to school.
In the event of an accident, the impacts can be intense as buses are large. Also, buses do not usually have seat belts and their large size can cause maneuverability issues. Buses can have large blind spots, and they can be hard to drive in a big city like New York City.
While buses are relatively safe and are not involved in many accidents, these accidents can occur. They can even lead to fatalities. But, it is more common for bus accidents to lead to injuries. These accidents can cause injury to many people at once because buses often have several, even dozens of passengers at a time.
If you have been seriously hurt in a bus accident that was caused by the careless or reckless actions of another person, they could be held responsible for what happened. You could seek compensation for your injuries by filing a personal injury claim.
The best way to handle your claim is to go through a personal injury lawyer who is experienced with bus accident cases.
