Bus drivers are on duty for hours at a stretch, behind the wheel of big, hard-to-maneuver vehicles. In a crash, there are few protections for bus passengers and a car is no match for a bus that may weigh 10 tons or more.
The law offices of E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy provides proven representation to victims of bus accidents. We handle collisions involving commercial carriers on the New York Thruway, injuries on commuter buses in the Capital District and all bus-related accidents throughout Upstate and Central New York.
If you or a loved one was injured in a New York bus accident, contact us today.
The lawyers at E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy have the experience to pursue compensation for any scenario:
- Crashes involving over-the-road coaches (Greyhound, Trailways, etc.)
- Auto collisions with Capital District Transportation Authority (CTDA) buses
- School bus accidents
- Pedestrians hit by buses
- Bus passengers injured in a crash
- Other injuries while boarding, un-boarding or riding a bus
We know that bus crashes often cause substantial injuries when the smaller vehicle is crushed, pushed or spun around by the force of impact. We put the full resources of our firm into holding the public or private entity accountable for the injuries and associated losses.
Our personal injury lawyers bring decades of experience in motor vehicle accident litigation. We work quickly to track down witnesses and preserve evidence that may be critical to your case. We can hire industry experts and professionals, if necessary, to help prove that the bus driver was intoxicated, fatigued, distracted, violating traffic laws or otherwise negligent.
In a claim against the CDTA and other New York public transit systems, there is a 90-day window to file notice of the lawsuit. It is crucial that you contact a lawyer immediately to preserve your rights.
