The dangers of the NYC bus systems

The Transit Authority governs most of the New York City bus lines. If you are involved in a New York City bus accident, you must file a no-fault insurance claim with your own car insurance company or the insurance company of a person in your household. However, since many New Yorkers do not own a vehicle ― and therefore do not have an insurance policy ― most injured bus passengers must file against the Transit Authority. Moreover, since the Authority is self-insured, you must deal directly with them when filing a claim. They cover up to $50,000 in no-fault benefits, regardless of the severity of the injury. If your injuries meet the threshold of “serious injuries,” you may file a lawsuit to cover additional medical costs, lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering. Always consult a New York City personal injury attorney to learn more about your rights.

You can sustain injuries while boarding a bus or while the vehicle is in transit. Many bus accidents in New York are caused by:

  • Driver negligence
  • Driver inexperience
  • Driver fatigue
  • Slippery floors and stairs
  • Sudden stops
  • Hazardous bus stops
  • Inadequate safety and security
  • Mechanical failures
  • Rowdy passengers

Such accidents could cause minor injuries, such as cuts and bruising, or major health problems, including brain injury and even death.
