Schenectady Bus Accident Lawyers

Rely on Seasoned & Compassionate Legal Representation

Buses are a convenient and cost-effective public transportation option for many on-the-go Americans. However, buses are also large and heavy vehicles that are difficult to maneuver in traffic. When an accident occurs, bus passengers and other vehicle drivers tend to sustain serious and even catastrophic injuries. In fact, it’s estimated that bus drivers are responsible for over 60,000 devastating accidents each year.

If you’ve been injured in a bus-related accident, contact the Schenectady bus accident attorneys at DeLorenzo, Grasso & Dalmata. Our firm has been successfully representing clients in personal injury cases since 1948.

Call our Schenectady bus accident attorneys at (518) 299-0314 if you’re interested in pursuing a personal injury lawsuit.

Determining Liability & Pursuing Damages

It’s often difficult for injury victims to establish negligence without legal aid. This is because multiple parties and even government entities can be held liable for your injury. Because of this, you may need to deal with complicated legal procedures that vary by state and jurisdiction. Only a zealous and aggressive legal advocate can represent your case and maximize your claim.

Liable parties in a bus accident can include:

  • The bus driver
  • The bus company
  • The bus manufacturer
  • A government entity
  • A negligent third-party driver

How to Secure Your Claim

If you’re injured in an accident, it’s important to follow certain steps to protect your claim and secure your right to compensation. If possible, take color photographs of the accident scene, any vehicles involved, and the injuries you sustained. The next step is to seek medical attention immediately. If you wait too long to seek medical treatment, the insurance company may claim that your injuries don’t warrant maximum compensation. This is why it’s so important to request a copy of your medical record and keep any receipts or statements related to your accident injuries.

If your claim is successful, you may be awarded the following damages:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Loss of wages
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Property damage
  • Professional care
  • Transportation fees

Per the statute of limitations in New York, claimants have 3 years to file a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent party. Oftentimes, insurance companies offer claimants substandard settlements to trick them into accepting less compensation than their injuries warrant. Our attorneys can negotiate with these insurance companies on your behalf and ensure that you receive damages that cover your medical expenses and financial needs.
