Queens Bus Accident Lawyer
Find out how to recover compensation for your bus crash injuries by working with an experienced Queens bus accident lawyer.
If you were injured in a bus crash, you’ll need legal help to receive financial compensation and protect your rights. To find out what your options are, speak with a Queens bus accident lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer.
Determining Fault for a Bus Wreck
There are three main types of buses. The kind you were in an accident with will help determine who was at fault and how your claim will need to be handled. For example, were you hit by a city bus? Was your child injured in a school bus accident? Were you hurt while taking a trip on a tour or charter bus?
Hiring a Queens bus accident lawyer can help determine fault because we have the investigative resources to find out if the transit authority, bus company, bus driver, bus manufacturer, or another driver was to blame for the crash. In some cases, this requires conducting depositions to ask under-oath questions of everyone involved prior to going to trial.
Suing the Government for a Bus Wreck Is Complicated
If you are suing the city, county, or state, there are specific procedural steps that must be taken. New York City, for example, requires that an official notice be given of your injury within ninety days of the accident. If you don’t file the appropriate notice, you may be unable to sue the city, even if the Metropolitan Transportation Authority MTA caused your accident.
Hiring a Queens bus accident lawyer who understands the protocols required to file a claim against a government entity is incredibly important and can directly impact the outcome of your case.
The Largest Settlement for Your Bus Accident
Once the other party is aware that you are taking legal action, they may try to settle your claim. Be careful not to settle too quickly or you may inadvertently leave money on the table. We need to fully assess the extent of your injuries and the likelihood that you will recover to ensure that you are not stuck paying for future medical bills out of pocket.
Your Queens bus accident lawyer can also help you recover compensation to pay for any of the following damages that apply to your claim:
- Reduced quality of life
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation costs
- Lost wages and income
- Pain and suffering
- Transportation expenses
- Emotional distress
- All other accident-related expenses and losses
Should I Go to Court?
We can help you with the negotiations process. If a fair settlement offer is made, you may want to settle out of court. However, if they are unwilling to pay enough for your injuries, going to court may be your best option.
