Brooklyn Bus Accident Lawyers Aggressively Advocate for Their Clients

New York attorneys seek compensation for victims of mass transit injuries

On an average day, more than a million people who live, work or visit New York City choose buses as their means of transportation. Travelers rely on the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) and private companies such as Greyhound and MegaBus to get them safely to their destinations. However, when traffic accidents involve buses, they can cause serious injury not only to the bus passengers but to other drivers, their passengers and pedestrians. At Goldberg Sager & Associates, you can count on our experienced Brooklyn bus accident lawyers to provide the skilled representation you need. We have extensive experience providing injury victims and their families with comprehensive legal support and securing exceptional results. 

Common causes of bus accidents in Brooklyn

Among the leading causes of bus accidents are:

  • Fatigued drivers
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or other substances
  • Driving aggressively 
  • Brake failure
  • Defective parts
  • Improper maintenance

One of the first steps we take in any bus accident case is to pinpoint the likely causes of the crash, so that we can identify the parties at fault and link their negligence to your injuries.

Common injuries in Brooklyn bus accidents

Bus accidents can cause a variety of injuries, such as:

We use expert medical testimony and your medical records to connect the bus accident to your injuries and outline how those injuries have negatively affected your life.

Experienced Brooklyn bus accident attorney identifies fault

Bus accidents are not necessarily the fault of a single negligent party. Often, several parties may be jointly at fault, including:

  • The bus driver
  • The bus owner
  • A school, in a case involving a school bus
  • Government agencies such as the MTA
  • Anyone responsible for maintaining the bus
  • Other motorists

Our Brooklyn vehicle accident attorneys act quickly to determine who is at fault and take every step necessary so that the liable parties are held responsible for your care, coverage and compensation.

Filing claims against government bodies in New York

If you are injured in a bus accident caused by the negligence of an MTA driver or another government employee, you might need to file a claim against the agency employing them. It’s important to act quickly, because your ability to win damages from the government could be barred if you wait more than 90 days after the accident to file your claim. To make sure your claim is timely and properly filed, you should retain an experienced attorney as soon as possible after a subway accident in order to preserve your rights. If you choose us, you can depend on us to preserve your rights.

Compensation for bus accident injuries

Victims of bus accidents may be entitled to compensation for the following types of harm:

  • Medical, hospital, rehabilitation and care provider expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of the enjoyment of life

We make every reasonable effort to secure the maximum amount of compensation from the agencies, businesses and individuals responsible for your injuries.
