Why You Need a NYC Subway and Bus Accident Lawyer
Many residents of New York City depend on the subway, railways, buses and other forms of mass transit to get around. When using public transportation, it’s reasonable to assume you will get to where you are going safely. Accidents do happen, however, and innocent victims become injured. When this happens, it can cause medical bills, pain, suffering and lost wages. You need the help of an MTA or private bus accident attorney to ensure you are fairly compensated.
Waiting to contact an attorney can make it harder to prove your case and if you miss a deadline, you won’t be able to recover damages. If you or someone you love has been injured due to a subway, tour bus or any other type of accident involving public transportation; don’t delay contacting a NYC MTA accident attorney.
MTA Accidents and When You Should Call in an Expert
Whenever the accident causing your injuries involved any type of mass transit, you may need an MTA or Tour Bus accident attorney in New York. The accident doesn’t have to be a collision with another vehicle. It could be an accident caused inside the vehicle or from a short stop. It is best to hire the right kind of accident law firm to handle your case.
Jeffery Kestenbaum has pursued compensation as a MTA accident lawyer in cases including:
- Subway platform or stairs accidents
- Subway accidents
- Intoxicated, over-medicated or distracted bus or train operators
- City bus collisions
- Charter or Tour bus accidents
- Head-on collisions
- Pedestrian accident cases involving city or private buses
- School bus accident cases
- Poorly maintained buses or trains
It’s important to understand; in the state of New York, all buses must carry No-Fault insurance. This insurance may cover some of your medical bills, but gaining full compensation for lost wages, future medical bills and for pain and suffering requires more than just basic insurance. With the help of an MTA accident attorney in New York City, you can become financially “whole” again.
Pedestrians are covered by the New York City Transit Authority up to $50,000 for medical bills and lost wages, if struck and injured by a bus. Even though $50,000 may sound like a lot of money, it will only cover a portion of medical bills in most cases. We will fight to obtain compensation for your lost wages, pain and suffering, and past or future medical bills.
