Bus Accidents Lead To Serious Injuries
Many of us rely on the bus system to get us where we need to go. Due to the size and nature of these vehicles, accidents can have severe consequences. If you have been injured in a bus accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering. At Surdez & Perez P.C., we have helped injured clients throughout New York. We can help you, too.
Holding Both Private And Public Bus Companies Accountable
Bus accidents are different from your typical car accident case. Many buses are owned by state or local government entities. This means that the driver could be protected by “sovereign immunity.” Essentially, there are accelerated requirements to make a claim and it caps the total amount of damages you can receive. If the bus company is privately owned, we follow the normal rules that apply during a personal injury case.
As with many legal cases, it is important to act quickly. A notice of claim is a document that shows your intent to sue. If this is not done within a few months, you lose your chance at compensation. It must be in writing and include specific details about the accident. Our firm can help you build the strongest possible case and put all of the broken pieces back together.
