If You’ve Been Injured In A New York Bus Accident, We Can Help.

If you’ve suffered an injury in a bus accident, a skilled New York City bus accident lawyer from the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny can help you obtain the financial compensation that you need. The term “bus accident” can involve bus passengers, pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, school buses, and motorcoaches (large buses). Because of their large passenger capacity, bus accidents in NYC often involve a larger number of injuries than traditional car accidents, making them a likely reason for personal injury claims and lawsuits.

According to the National Transportation Safety Board:

Without standards for roof strength, window glazing, and a protected seating area, motorcoach accidents can be catastrophic. . . . Even when the motorcoach remains relatively intact during an accident, passengers lacking a protective seating environment can be thrown from their seating area and killed or injured.

School bus accidents are another source of injury and often involve young children. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 19 children die in school bus accidents every year.

How to Prove Negligence in a Bus Accident Case

Like any personal injury claim, you must be able to demonstrate that your injury was caused by another person’s negligence. Four common types of bus accident negligence include:

  • Poor maintenance
  • Negligent supervision
  • The bus driver’s record
  • Driver qualifications

Other factors, such as the weight capacity of the bus, can be used to create a strong case for your lawsuit or claim as well. Only a skilled New York City bus accident attorney can help investigate evidence surrounding your case to determine what type of negligence is responsible for your accident.
