Birzon, Strang, and Associates, are highly respected Long Island Bus Accident Lawyers and know that bus Accidents, including NICE, Suffolk County Transit Bus, NYC MTA, City bus, school buses, tour buses, bus charters, deluxe motor coaches, shuttle bus, or any other type of bus accident can cause catastrophic injuries to their passengers, other drivers, pedestrians, and when the driver loses control of the bus, they can jump sidewalks and hit stores, buildings, and other stationary objects and due to the buses large size, they cause a lot of damage, even when driving Long Islands roads at lower speed.

As a result of the bus accident, passengers sometimes sustain life-altering injuries, such as severe lacerations, broken bones, head neck and spine injuries including brain damage, amputations, and burns. Unfortunately, all to often, some buses are traveling at a high rate of speed, when a driver gets distracted or falls asleep, or a mechanical error occurs, and their bus, perhaps a bus filled with passengers going to or from a Casino or other tourist attraction, while traveling down a roadway such as the LIE, LI Parkways, any NYS Thruways, NY Expressways, or other Highways, or Long Island streets, crashes into another vehicle, or goes off the roadway and crashes. These types of bus accidents can, and often do, prove fatal.

In many bus accident cases, if the bus driver and bus company followed the rules and regulations regarding the operation and maintenance of their buses, such as those set forth by local, city, state and federal transportation authorities, the bus accident and the severe injuries or wrongful death could have been avoided if not for the bus driver, bus company, other bus operating entities such as  Nassau Inter County Express (NICE) and Suffolk County Transit Buses, bus and equipment manufacturer’s, or bus maintenance negligence.
