Emergency workers had to cut the door out of one of the buses to remove passengers. The vehicles were headed into Manhattan at the time of the collision. One of the bus drivers was issued a summons for an unsafe lane change.

Common Causes of Bus Accidents

Negligently operated buses present a major threat to the public, motorists, and passengers. A motor vehicle accident may result if the bus driver:

  • Texts or talks on a cell phone
  • Is intoxicated or inebriated
  • Drives long-distance routes without adequate sleep
  • Lacks training and experience
  • Fails to monitor the back end of the bus during turns or lane changes

In most cases, motor coach companies are at fault for the negligence of their bus drivers. The rules and regulations may encourage the bus operators to forgo sleep, take stimulants or other controlled substances to keep the bus on schedule. Furthermore, in an effort to cut costs, the company may hire drivers with a history of traffic citations and without the necessary experience to safely operate a bus.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
