BUS ACCIDENTS IN NEW YORK
Unfortunately, thousands of buses are involved in serious accidents every single year in New York State. In many cases, these accidents are due to negligence, meaning they could have been avoided, had the bus driver behaved more responsibly. If you are someone who has been injured in a bus accident as a passenger, you are most likely entitled to financial compensation. Some of the most common causes of bus accidents that we see are as follows:
- Unsafely discharging passengers
- Sudden stops and starts
- Failing to have safety equipment on board, such as fire extinguishers
- Using a cellular device while driving
- Driving while intoxicated
- Failing to check blind spots
- Failing to brake on time
When someone is injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault, they are often entitled to financial compensation. This compensation can help them recover from the financial and non-monetary damages they incurred as a result of their accident. Some examples of economic damages include lost wages and medical bills, and some examples of non-economic damages include disfigurement, pain and suffering, and the loss of enjoyment of life.
FILING A NOTICE OF CLAIM IN NYS
When it comes to personal injury claims, there is always a statute of limitations in place. In most cases, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is three years, however, if you were injured on public transportation that is owned by a municipality or the state, such as the MTA, you will only have 90 days from the date of your accident to file a Notice of Claim. This is why it is so important that you promptly reach out to a New York City & Westchester County bus accident lawyer who can file your claim at once.

José Báez is an excellent Attorney. He helped me through one of the toughest times in my life. He gave me support and was very professional and of high quality. José was always accessible and always returns my calls without delay. I just can’t say enough about José Báez. Anybody who’s been injured in a truck accident, or any other accident should definitely hire José Báez. I strongly recommend Mr. Báez.
- Elizabeth S.
Not only have I had the pleasure of working alongside Jose, but I’ve also been on the receiving end of his handling of the transference of my father’s estate. Jose and the Baez Legal Group demonstrated a kind of versatility, accountability, and dedication rarely seen outside of large international law firms. He handles a wide variety of cases with seeming ease, often surprising both his clients and I with the scope of his knowledge of different legal disciplines. Jose is not one of the myriads of lawyers that always seem too busy to allocate the proper amount of care and time to their clients; in fact, he was often in the habit of reaching out first, even if just to see how we’re doing. Should you wish to receive an unprecedented amount of excellence in the handling of your case, the Baez Legal Group should be your first and only resort.

Jose stuck with me in a very difficult case that many other lawyers would not even take on. It was a three-year battle and luckily with Jose’s help I was not charged criminally. Jose pays very close attention to details and his responses to the opposing side were thorough and full of substance.
