Legal Help for New York Bus Accident Victims
If you have been injured in a New York bus accident -- whether by a school bus, a city bus, or a commercial bus -- and you are seeking legal assistance, feel free to call the Law Offices of Timothy A. Green for a free case evaluation.
Bus accidents can be among the worst kind of motor vehicle accidents. Injuries from bus accidents are often very serious because of the size and weight of the bus in comparison to the vehicle they hit. If the bus hits a motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian, the accident is usually catastrophic, and may result in permanent disability or often times, death.
Because buses are usually owned by large companies, municipalities, cities, counties or school districts, often a sophisticated team of insurance adjusters and lawyers will quickly begin working against you even if the accident was not your fault. We hope you will contact your own legal team at the Law Offices of Timothy A. Green before talking to any insurance company and before signing any document.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a New York bus accident and the accident was not your fault, you may have certain rights to recover compensation for injuries, property damage, lost wages from missed work, medical bills and disability. But bus companies or their insurance adjusters or attorneys may try to get you to waive (give up) those rights so they can save money and deprive you of those rights. Please keep in mind that neither the owner of the bus, the driver of the bus nor any insurance adjuster has your best interests at mind. They're interests are to avoid compensating you at all, or to minimize it as much as possible. Therefore, it is very important that your interests are represented and your rights are protected.
