WESTCHESTER BUS ACCIDENT LAWYERS

Our Westchester bus accident lawyers know that cases involving bus accidents are among some of the most complicated cases because of the strict time limits and counter-intuitive laws. These unclear and often counter-intuitive laws are a trap for the unwary and even small missteps can prevent you from receiving compensation for your personal injuries. If you were injured in a bus accident, you need an experienced bus accident lawyer right away. From our White Plains office, our bus accident lawyers have handled bus accident cases from all over Westchester County, including White Plains, Yonkers, Mount Vernon, Harrison, Valhalla and New Rochelle. Our bus accident lawyers have handled every type of bus accident imaginable, including Bee Line bus accidents, school bus accidents, tour bus accidents and motor coach bus accidents. No matter what type of bus accident you were injured in our attorneys have the experience to get you the compensation that you deserve. 

ARE THERE TIME LIMITS TO SUE FOR A BEE LINE BUS ACCIDENT

If you were on a Bee Line Bus, the time limits to file a claim for this type of accident are different than for a standard personal injury case.  The Bee Line Bus is run by the County of Westchester, although it is operated by Liberty Lines. For any government run bus, including the Bee line in Westchester, a notice of claim needs to be filed with Westchester County within 90 days of the accident. Also unlike a standard personal injury case like a car accident, the statute of limitations is only a year and ninety days.

One of the most frequent questions our Westchester school bus accident lawyers are asked is

"My child was hurt in an accident while on  school bus, What Do I Do?".

 
 The first step is to figure out if the school bus is owned and operated by the school district or a private company. In Westchester, every school district operates differently. Some school districts operate their own buses, while others contract with private companies to provide busing services to their students. If your child was injured on a school bus, which was operated by the school district, then you have to file a notice of claim within 90 days of the accident, with the school district. While the statute of limitations is one year and ninety days from the date of the accident, for a child under eighteen years of age, the statute of limitations is tolled until their eighteenth birthday.  If your child was injured in an accident while on a bus that was privately operated, there is no notice of claim requirement. 

TOUR BUS AND MOTOR COACH ACCIDENTS 

If you were injured on a tour bus or motorcoach bus that was travelling through Westchester County, trust our Westchester bus accident lawyers to get you the compensation that you deserve. Motorcoach and tour buses travel through Westchester constantly, for tours between Manhattan and the casinos in Connecticut, as well as for tours to upstate New York, such as Howe caverns.   Bus operators have a responsibility to operate the buses safely and to operate the bus in such a manner that they do not get into an accident or cause injuries to their passengers. If you were injured in a tour bus accident, call our Westchester bus accident lawyers today.
