In New York City, many people who do not own cars take public transportation, which includes using buses for daily commutes. Bus accidents are fairly common as a result of pedestrian and bus collisions or injuries sustained while riding in a bus and can be the cause of devastating injuries because, in general buses do not have protective devices such as seat belts and airbags. Buses may be involved in collisions during bad weather when roads are wet or icy, or when drivers of automobiles are distracted by mobile phones or general inattention and collide with the bus on the road.
In only one bus accident, there can be several victims because of the number of passengers that a bus can hold. If you’ve been hurt in a bus accident, a New York bus accident lawyer can help you get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. The legal experts at the Law Offices of G.
