for Your Maximum
The Financial District is located in lower Manhattan. Wall Street is located here and the area is also sometimes referred to as FiDi. Just south is the Staten Island ferry and the common zip codes are 10004, 10005, 10006, 10007, and 10038.
Buses are a common sight on our city streets. Buses can be found traveling through intersections, the brakes sometimes squeaking as they head towards a stop. Others depart as they maneuver less than gracefully through the Financial District and Lower Manhattan more generally.
In NYC, hundreds of thousands of people rely on public transportation as they travel to work, to visit friends and family, or to simply get around the city as they go about their daily activities. Sightseeing buses are also commonplace in FiDi as these buses move over to the side of the road, and sometimes abruptly, to pick-up and discharge passengers. These tour buses are run as for-profit enterprises and sometimes safety is thrown out the window, so to speak, to ensure hefty profits. The vast majority of these rides are uneventful, but accidents can and do happen.
The sheer size and weight of these buses means that accidents occurring between a bus and a car, cyclist or pedestrian, usually result in severe personal injury to the victim. Additionally, bus passengers may become seriously injured or even die as a result of these accidents as well.
From soft tissue injuries, to fractured bones, to traumatic brain injuries (often known by the acronym, TBI), it is very important that you seek both medical attention and legal counsel about the extent of your injuries and what they may mean in terms of your rehab process, continuing disability, and the financial assistance you will necessitate for your recovery, both physically, mentally and financially. If you have been injured in an accident involving any type of bus, the Downtown NYC personal injury lawyers at Michael J. Redenburg, Esq. PC are ready to help you get the financial compensation you are entitled to.
If it turns out that the bus operator was negligent, careless or otherwise at fault for the happening of the accident and your resultant injuries, you should seek recovery. Recoverable damages may include financial loss (past and future income, cost of medical visits and rehabilitation, house-keeping) and compensation for your pain and suffering.
Bus Accidents caused by fatigued, impaired or improperly or insufficiently trained bus drivers; reckless or distracted driving; driving while drugged or intoxicated, overloaded or improperly loaded buses; and poorly maintained bus equipment are all possible grounds for a successful lawsuit to obtain damages for your injuries. However, the deadlines for filing these claims involving municipalities and municipal employees are different than regular motor vehicle accidents and very strict deadlines may apply. Talk to a lawyer immediately following your bus accident to ensure that the necessary documents are filed in a timely manner and you are legally protected.
By contacting the personal injury lawyer at Michael J. Redenburg, Esq. promptly following your bus accident, you can be certain we will ensure no deadlines are missed and your legal options remain open. Together we will help guide you through the legal and recovery process while also preparing your case with a special focus on your current and future needs.
After a traumatic accident, it is important to focus on your physical and mental well-being. As your legal advocates, we will give you peace of mind that your quest for justice is in good hands so you can concentrate on your health, family, and future.
I have come to know Michael Redenburg from a legal matter. He is always professional and caring for his clients. No matter your level of worry, he comes through and put your mind at ease. He has a very sensitive side to him. I recalled when my dad passed from Covid and funeral homes were all booked. Mr. Redenburg put everything aside when I was ready to give it all up and assisted in locating a funeral home for my family. I will never forget that gesture of kindness.
If you are looking for an attorney that cares just about his case, and not you as a client, then look for that attorney elsewhere because Mr. Redenburg is different in that area. He cares and talks to you as a family member.
