Do I Need an Ulster County Bus Accident Lawyer?

The laws surrounding bus accident claims are slightly different when it comes to other more standard personal injury claims, especially when the bus company is owned by a municipality. This is why if you’ve been injured in a bus accident, you should speak with a personal injury lawyer to learn more about your case.

Bus Accident Causes

Bus accidents are complicated in that there are often several potentially liable parties. For example, at times, bus accidents are caused by other negligent drivers. However, in other cases, bus accidents are caused due to defective bus parts.

That being said, keeping in mind that buses are complex pieces of machinery to operate, the majority of bus accidents are caused by negligent bus drivers themselves. Some of the most common causes of bus accidents include operating buses while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, operating a bus at unsafe speeds, failing to ensure that they allow sufficient time to break, ignoring particularly large blind spots, and more.

Notice of Claim

When someone is injured in an accident in New York State, in most cases, they will have three years from the date of their accident to take legal action against the liable party, in accordance with the statute of limitations. However, if you were injured in a bus accident in New York State where the bus was owned by a municipality, you will have far less time to file a Notice of Claim. For this very reason, it is critical that you take action as soon as you can so we can promptly begin the claims process on your behalf.
