Liability For Flatbush Car Accidents
Far too many people are injured in MTA bus accidents each year. According to one report from the New York Post, “At least 2,520 people — or 2.7 per day — were injured [from 2015 – 2018], according to the MTA. At least 14 people died, including a 25-year-old skateboarder, a 62-year-old pedestrian, a 60-year-old motorist and a 70-year-old with a walker who was mutilated by a hit-and-run bus.” There are a number of factors that could contribute to any MTA bus accident.
- MTA buses have a wide turning radius and are more likely to be involved in side impact collisions.
- Drivers are more likely to lose control of their vehicle at higher speeds.
- Many bus accidents occur at intersections.
Any person that is injured in an MTA bus accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover many of the expenses that come with a serious injury. It is important that evidence is properly preserved after any bus accident. A bus accident attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
