Albany Bus Accident Attorneys

Skilled New York Lawyers Ready To Help You

Bus drivers are on duty for hours at a stretch, behind the wheel of big, hard-to-maneuver vehicles. In a crash, there are few protections for bus passengers and a car is no match for a bus that may weigh 10 tons or more.

The law offices of Hacker Murphy provides proven representation to victims of bus accidents. We handle collisions involving commercial carriers on the New York Thruway, injuries on commuter buses in the Capital District, and all bus-related accidents throughout Upstate and Central New York.

If you or a loved one was injured in a New York bus accident, contact us today.

Recovering Compensation in a Bus Accident Case

The lawyers at Hacker Murphy have the experience to pursue compensation for any scenario:

  • Crashes involving over-the-road coaches (Greyhound, Trailways, etc.)
  • Auto collisions with Capital District Transportation Authority (CTDA) buses
  • School bus accidents
  • Pedestrians hit by buses
  • Bus passengers injured in a crash
  • Other injuries while boarding, un-boarding, or riding a bus

How Our Team Can Help

We know that bus crashes often cause substantial injuries when the smaller vehicle is crushed, pushed, or spun around by the force of impact. We put the full resources of our firm into holding the public or private entity accountable for the injuries and associated losses.

Our dedicated injury lawyers bring decades of experience in motor vehicle accident litigation. We work quickly to track down witnesses and preserve evidence that may be critical to your case. We can hire industry experts and professionals, if necessary, to help prove that the bus driver was intoxicated, fatigued, distracted, violating traffic laws, or otherwise negligent.

In a claim against the CDTA and other New York public transit systems, there is a 90-day window to file a notice of the lawsuit. It is crucial that you contact a lawyer immediately to preserve your rights.

Have Questions?

  • If I hire an attorney but do not want to go to trial, can I settle?
    In the course of preparing a case for trial, your personal injury attorney will work with the defense attorneys and insurance companies in an effort to secure a fair settlement for you and your family. The final decision to accept an offer of settlement or go to trial is yours alone to make.

  • If arrested, what steps can I take on my behalf?

    1. Do not discuss your situation with anyone except your attorney.

    3. Request to have your attorney present if you are to be put in a lineup or subjected to testing.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
