There are certainly plenty of vehicles crowding New York City streets, including cars, minivans, SUVs, motorcycles, and bicycles, not to mention all the pedestrians. So an accident here and there is certainly nothing out of the ordinary, and thankfully most accidents are simple fender benders involving one or two cars. But not so with the recent accident involving a city bus full of passengers. Many of the passengers received injuries, some critical, questions remained afterwards as to how they would all receive compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering.
When there is some confusion of whom to file a lawsuit against after an accident, it is recommended that you contact a personal injury attorney in NY for help. In the case of the above bus accident, the fault lies with the speeding driver that slammed into the bus. But other times it may not be so evident as to the cause of the crash. A personal injury attorney in New York can help investigate the accident, speak with witnesses, talk to authorities, obtain accident reports, and more, all in order to determine who was at fault for the crash and how you can be compensated for your injuries.
This is especially important when you or a loved one has been injured in a bus crash. In order to ensure that you receive fair compensation in a timely fashion, you will need a NY personal injury attorney to negotiate on your behalf with insurance companies and possibly file a lawsuit against a party that has been found to be negligent and at fault for the accident.
