New York Bus Accident Lawyer

Our MTA bus accident lawyers serve injury victims throughout the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island & Greater New York City

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has a monopoly on bus service in New York City. With a fleet of some 5,600 buses carrying millions of riders over millions of miles each year, virtually every New Yorker has experienced a near-miss or an accident involving an MTA bus, whether as a pedestrian, driver or commuter.

The NYC bus accident attorneys Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm represents those who have suffered severe and lasting injuries in bus accidents — as passengers, as pedestrians, or as occupants of another vehicle.

We know the protocols to bring a lawsuit against the Transit Authority/MTA to preserve your rights to be compensated for your losses and have the record of successful bus accident settlements to prove it.

We have taken the cases of our clients injured by Transit buses to trial and have won large jury awards and settlements in those cases.

We handle bus accident injuries throughout New York City, including Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. Contact us today for a free case evaluation with an experienced New York bus accident lawyer at our firm.

Handling Bus Related Injuries

The public bus system serving the five boroughs is known by many names: New York City Bus, NYC Transit (NYCT), MTA Bus, or Regional Bus Operations (RBO). After consolidation, all are now operated by the New York City Transit Authority, which is part of the broader Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA).

Rather than trying to figure out which agency is which or how to file a claim, let our experienced bus accident attorneys take on those burdens. We want you to focus on recovering from your injuries and resuming as normal a life as possible as soon as possible.

If we determine you have a good case for negligence, you will be backed by 20 years of proven personal injury advocacy and the full resources of our firm.

There is a time limit to file the notice of a lawsuit against the Transit Authority/MTA — 90 days from the date of the accident — so you should not delay in talking to an attorney.

Raphaelson & Levine excels at winning compensation for the most serious injuries, whatever the circumstances:

  • Pedestrians or bicyclists hit by a city bus
  • Motor vehicle collisions with MTA buses (MTA bus hit my car)
  • Bus passengers injured by a crash or sudden starts or stops

A 12-ton bus can cause major injuries even when it strikes a pedestrian or “clips” a smaller vehicle while turning. Passengers aboard the bus can suffer serious injuries if they are tossed sideways or thrown forward.

Our bus accident attorneys conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of the crash, including the bus driver’s actions and driving history. We pursue damages for medical expenses, lost wages, disability, and pain and suffering.
