How an Accident Attorney Can Help After a Crash

How an Accident Attorney Can Help After a CrashOn May 29, 2014, a city bus crossed two lanes of traffic and rear-ended a stopped truck on Bruckner Blvd. at Bryant Ave. in the Bronx. As reported by the Daily News, eight passengers on the Bx5 bus were injured and taken to St. Barnabas Hospital. Two of those passengers had injuries that were considered serious. While an investigation into the incident is underway, it serves as a reminder to anyone injured in a bus accident to consult a trusted accident attorney immediately.

Claims Against a Government-Operated Bus

In the event of an accident involving a municipally owned or operated vehicle, a notice of claim must be filed to protect the interests of the accident victim. New York General Municipal Law Section 50-e requires a victim seeking to recover from a state or most local governmental entities, to serve a Notice of Claim, which must be in writing and notarized, within 90 days of the accident. There are certain tolling provisions which may provide the accident victim with additional time; however, don’t count on that. (See NY Court’s How to File a Notice of Claim Guide.)
