About Subway And Railroad Accidents
Injuries occur in a variety of circumstances, including when passengers are getting on and off subways and trains, when trains or subway cars derail, when trains or subway cars collide and when violence occurs on any type of mass transit.
We understand how frightening it can be to submit required documentation to Metro Transit Authority (MTA) personnel and otherwise act promptly to protect your rights. We are here for you as we have been for many residents and visitors to New York over the past three decades. If we represent you, you will not owe attorney fees until we recover a settlement or verdict on your behalf.
About Bus Accidents
Bus accidents happen on all kinds of buses: public transportation buses, school buses and private buses. Driving a bus of any size is different from operating a standard car, and different rules of the road may apply to buses and their drivers. The impact from a collision with a bus – as opposed to a car – can be much stronger, and the damage to a person should be assessed accordingly.
Buses are often operated or maintained by entities that are different from their owners. Especially when a public transportation bus is involved, it is vital that the proper entities be identified early on before any legal deadlines expire. The statute of limitations – or legal deadline – to make a claim against a public entity that owns a bus is much shorter than against a private entity, and the requirements to make this claim are specific.
A bus accident can injure passengers on the bus, people in other vehicles and/or pedestrians. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident, contact the attorneys at Greenberg Law P.C. today. Trust our family-run law firm, as we have more than 30 years of experience representing thousands of victims just like you.
