Common Causes of Bus Accidents in New York

Bus accidents can occur for a number of reasons, including defective automotive parts, driver error, limited visibility and dangerous road conditions. Moreover, due to the sheer size and unwieldiness of buses, they are more likely to tip and cause catastrophic personal injuries to motorists and passengers alike. Bus drivers must also handle more distractions than drivers of smaller vehicles, since they transport large numbers of passengers in cramped, crowded spaces. Regardless of the cause of the bus accident, and regardless of whether the driver or another party was fully or partially responsible for the accident, accident victims are entitled to pursue compensation for their injuries. A skilled bus accident attorney can work on your behalf to determine who was at fault for the accident and will hold that party responsible.

Proving Fault in a New York Bus Accident

In order to obtain compensation for your injuries following a bus accident, you must be able to prove who was at fault. Whether the responsible party was the bus driver, the bus manufacturer, a truck driver, an automobile driver or a motorcyclist involved in the accident, or another party, proving negligence can be difficult, especially given the complexity of personal injury law and commercial vehicle accident law. If you have been injured in a bus accident, we urge you to consult with our New York City bus accident attorneys.
