Tribeca is located in Lower Manhattan and the zip codes are 10007 and 10013.
If you have been injured in a bus accident in lower Manhattan, your Tribeca bus accident attorney will likely need to know the answers to the following questions:
- Can you say whether or not the accident was avoidable?
- Do you know whether or not anyone's negligence played a role?
- Was the bus owned and/or operated by the City or a municipality? If it was a New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) or Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) bus, then there is a very short window to file an important and necessary document known as a Notice of Claim.
5-STAR GOOGLE Review
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 else where because Mr Redenburg is different in that area. He cares and talks to you as a family member.
Did the bus crash to avoid a distracted pedestrian? Was the driver unable to react quickly because of fatigue? Could a problem with the bus's brakes be a factor? Was the driver of the bus, or the driver of an adverse vehicle under the influence of alcohol or an illegal or controlled substance?
There could also be many different factors that contributed to the bus accident. Did the driver of the bus have to make a fast maneuver to avoid an accident? Did another vehicle swerve to avoid an accident and cause the bus to crash? Did personnel from the bus company arrive on the scene and make out a report? If so, did you get a copy of the report? Speak to the bus company personnel? Some bus company and some vehicle operator will likely bear fault for the accident and determining who it is will be important for your case and your financial recovery.
In the state of New York you must file the appropriate Notice of Claim. While the Statute of Limitations is three years, you must file the Notice of Claim within 90 days of the happening of the accident or forfeit your right to sue.
