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

  • Who is Legally Responsible for My Bus Accident in Queens?

    Bus accidents frequently involve multiple injured passengers and potentially liable parties. Every case is unique. However, anyone who contributed to the bus accident might be held liable. Bus operators, manufacturers, government agencies, and other drivers could be liable. Determining liability will require a thorough investigation of the accident’s details.

  • What is the Statute of Limitations for Bus Accidents?

    In New York City, the statute of limitations is generally three years from the accident date. However, in cases that involve a government entity, the window to file a claim is much shorter. In fact, it can be as little as 90 days. If you’ve been injured in a bus accident, do not wait. Contact an expert Queens bus accident lawyer today. Waiting too long to file a case could prevent you from seeking compensation later on.

  • What Compensation Am I Entitled To?

    Settlement amounts vary based on case details. Medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and other expenses are potential kinds of compensation. If you have any questions about recovering your financial losses, don’t wait to have your case evaluated by an expert bus accident attorney.

  • How Can a Queens Bus Accident Lawyer Help Me?

    Attempting to negotiate with large corporations backed by powerful lawyers and vested interests in proving you wrong is simply an unwise decision. An expert lawyer can investigate your accident, build a strong case, determine liability, negotiate with insurance companies, and, if necessary, represent you in court.

  • How Much Will My Settlement Amount Be?

    Settlements for bus accidents are usually determined by liability and the extent of the victim’s injuries and personal damages. If you’ve suffered injuries that resulted in lifelong disability and substantial financial losses, your settlement will most likely be larger. However, there is no way to determine the settlement amount at the start of a case.

    Many law firms will overpromise to clients when they first sign up. From the start, the Law Offices of Eric Richman strives to be honest and realistic with our clients. Because the full extent of your damages is unknown at the outset of a case, any estimate of damages and potential financial recovery is also unknown.
