School Bus Accidents

New York City School Bus Accident Lawyers

Helping Families Recover Settlements in the Bronx, Queens & Brooklyn

Statistically, school buses are one of the safest forms of transportation. But these numbers provide little comfort for victims of school bus accidents, or for their families, whether the victim was struck by a bus or injured as a passenger. For over two decades, our NYC bus accident lawyers at Koenigsberg & Associates Law Offices have helped families recover settlements to help ease the physical and emotional toll of bus accidents. Recently our attorneys recovered one million dollars for a rider who suffered severe injury and disability through a collision with a school bus.

An experienced New York City school bus accident lawyer will:

  • Gather evidence
  • Determine who is responsible
  • Guide you through the legal process
  • Handle all paperwork and communication on your behalf
  • Fight for a substantial settlement or award

How Do School Bus Accidents Happen?

Tired or improperly trained operators, faulty or unmaintained vehicles, and dangerous road conditions can all be causes of bus accidents. We have the experience to determine which parties are at fault, the extent of their responsibility, and the amount of damages they should pay.

School buses are large vehicles – often stretching nearly forty feet in length. With eighty passengers aboard the bus can weigh more than 40,000 pounds. At highway speeds, it takes about 300 feet to stop a bus safely. Even at slow speeds, school bus accidents can be gruesome. Drivers are following complex routes, stopping and starting frequently, and often distracted by their passengers. As a result, serious school bus accidents occur far too often.

Koenigsberg & Associates Law Offices: Helping You Through Recovery

It is not uncommon for defendants to try to pass the buck, pushing blame onto the injured party. The number of parties makes it easy for school bus accident lawsuits to drag on.
