Common Causes of Bus Accidents in NYC
Bus accident injuries occur for many different reasons, including the following:
- Buses strike another vehicle, particularly another bus
- They hit a stationary object
- Reckless driving or poor roads, causing passengers to be thrown around,
even at low speeds
- Bus drivers may injure passengers who are trying to board or exit the bus,
if they are not paying attention in operating the doors
- Pedestrians, cyclists or people in cars can also be the victims of a bus accident
In addition, sometimes pedestrians, bicyclists, and other vehicles are
struck by an MTA bus. If you have been injured in any of these situations
due to a bus driver’s negligence, you are entitled to file a claim
to compensate you for your pain and suffering.
Responsibility of the Bus Driver
Bus drivers have a responsibility to their passengers and other drivers,
cyclists, and pedestrians. They are required to operate the bus in a careful
and cautious manner, without putting anyone’s safety at risk. There
have been cases of bus drivers being distracted or intoxicated, or using
excessive speed to try to meet their schedule. The MTA is responsible
for their actions and are required to compensate you if their employees
acted negligently. If you have been injured in a bus accident, a NY bus
accident lawyer from Belushin Law Firm can help you file a personal injury lawsuit.
