Bus Accidents Involving Bicycles In New York
A crash involving a bus and a bicycle will almost always have catastrophic consequences: loss of life or serious, life-changing injuries. Our long-standing New York personal injury law firm, Smiley & Smiley, LLP, has a 45-year track record of successfully handling these complex, high-value claims for bicycle accident victims.
When called upon as your NYC bicycle accident lawyers, we will thoroughly investigate your case to prove negligence and strive to maximize the amount of compensation you receive for your injuries. Our experience in bus accident cases includes successful litigation against the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), the New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) and private bus companies.
Our lawyers recovered $4 million for a young physician bicyclist who suffered multiple injuries, including a crushed pelvis, after a bus driver turned into him and then left the scene of the accident in Midtown Manhattan. This case required a determined investigative effort to identify the owners of the bus and hold them accountable — a level of effort often essential for favorable case results.
Tour Bus, Commuter Bus And MTA Accidents Involving Bicycles
Determining who is accountable for your bus and bike accident case will hinge on a number of factors, not the least of which is the type of bus involved in your accident. A tour bus accident case against a private bus company will play out much differently from a case involving the Metropolitan Transportation Authority or another public entity.
Furthermore, there may be multiple parties accountable for your accident, including the negligent bus driver, the bus company and, in some cases, the manufacturer of faulty bus components.
In any case, bus accidents involving bicycles in New York call for fast, responsive action by a proven legal team. Our firm has represented thousands of New Yorkers as well as many visiting tourists victimized by bicycle accidents throughout the five boroughs.
