This is not legal advice.
Since every case is unique, consider working with a lawyer to get advice on your specific situation.

  • What Should I Do Immediately after a Bus Accident in Brooklyn?

    In the immediate aftermath of an accident, it’s most important to call 9-1-1 and request medical attention. If possible, take photos of the accident scene and collect the contact details of witnesses. Avoid making detailed statements until you speak with a lawyer. Contact us.

  • What Types of Damages Can I Claim After a Bus Accident?

    Damages will vary depending on the circumstances and extent of the injuries. However, in general, victims may seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages incurred as a result of the accident.

  • What is the Statute of Limitations for Bus Accidents?

    Typically, there is a three-year window to file a personal injury lawsuit after a bus accident in Brooklyn. However, you could have a much shorter deadline if public entities are involved. If a city or public bus is involved you may have only 90 days to start your case. If you’ve been injured in a bus accident, do not wait to speak with an expert Brooklyn bus accident lawyer who can ensure you don’t lose your opportunity to seek compensation for your financial losses and damages.

  • How Can a Brooklyn Bus Accident Lawyer Help Me?

    A lawyer can take over the management of your case, investigate the accident, determine liability, build a strong case, serve papers to all involved parties, negotiate with insurance companies and their legal teams, and, if necessary, represent you in court. An expert lawyer can help manage your case’s challenges, enabling you to focus back on your recovery.

  • How Much Will My Settlement Amount Be?

    Many law firms will promise lofty settlement amounts to clients when they first sign up. The Law Offices of Eric Richman always strives to be honest and realistic with our clients from day one.

    Because the full extent of a victim’s damages is unknown at the outset of a case, any estimate of damages and potential financial recovery is also unknown. There is also no way to estimate a settlement amount from general information online.
