At TROLMAN GLASER CORLEY & LICHTMAN, P.C., we have extensive experience handling personal injury claims for people throughout New York City and the metropolitan area. One type of serious accident that frequently results in very serious injuries, is an accident occurring in the subway.

New York City's subway system is governed by the MTA (Metropolitan Transit Authority) and its subsidiary agency, the NYCTA (New York City Transit Authority). This is a governmental body and since this type of lawsuit involves suing a municipal authority, there are strict time limits that apply for the filing of a written claim and the commencement of a law suit. Generally speaking, a written notice of claim must be filed within 90 days from the date of the accident, or the claim will have no legal standing. The failure to file a timely claim can be fatal. It is therefore essential that an experienced attorney be retained, as soon as possible following the date of the accident to protect your rights.

REPRESENTING NEW YORKERS INJURED IN BUS CRASHES

For many New Yorkers, bus travel is part of their everyday routine. But sometimes, careless or negligent behavior by bus drivers and bus authority owners causes accidents. Passengers and others injured in bus accidents are eligible to file a no-fault insurance claim to secure reimbursement for their medical bills and lost wages and to bring a lawsuit to recover damages for pain and suffering. At TROLMAN GLASER CORLEY & LICHTMAN, P.C., we assist people who have been injured in bus accidents and have lost loved ones in fatal accidents. We will stand up for your rights and assist you in filing a claim to recover the monetary compensation you deserve

The Metropolitan Transit Authority and private tour bus companies throughout New York are responsible for keeping their passengers safe. While the overwhelming majority of bus drivers are careful, it only takes one careless driver to put innocent passengers at risk. Speeding or driving carelessly, while fatigued or under the influence of drugs or alcohol can lead to serious injuries and even death. Injuries are sustained while boarding buses, riding buses, stepping on or off buses, while waiting at a bus stop, and even when crossing in front of a bus.

On occasion, failure to provide adequate security on a bus journey can lead to harm. If you have been assaulted on a bus and your injuries could have been avoided by proper security precautions, you may able to secure monetary compensation by pursuing a personal injury claim.

Because most of the transit buses in New York are owned and operated by a governmental body, strict and timely filing requirements apply just like in subway accidents. It is critical to secure the services of an attorney as soon as possible following an accident so that the necessary written claim is filed. Filing too late can be fatal to a claim.
