Some clients wonder, what are the common causes of bus accidents in New York? The answer is lousy drivers. Sometimes the bus driver is distracted. Sometimes the car in front of him is distracted, especially in Manhattan. It’s pretty much a game to cut off the bus and get in front of the bus, and try not to be behind the bus. It’s a very difficult situation when you’re in a bus. Most drivers are very professional, they’re very experienced, and they’ve been driving buses for a long period of time. They really do the best to drive in traffic and not to get into accidents.

If you do get into an accident and you’re in a bus, it’s very important that you make sure that that bus driver or that police officer that comes to investigate the accident has your name. You want to establish that you were in the bus at the time of the accident. That’s the first thing you want to do when you’re in a bus accident. It’s very important that you give that information, so that when the time comes to say you were in the bus and get your no-fault payments, doctor bills paid, hospital bills paid or even to make a lawsuit, it is clear that you were a passenger in the bus at the time of the accident.
