Bus accident injury claims in New York State are very different from typical car accident claims. If it’s an accident involving a bus such as the NFTA, the statute of limitation periods are reduced greatly, so things have to be done very quickly. In addition, it’s very important to understand, with respect to bus accident cases, that the no-fault law is very different.
When you’re involved in a motor vehicle accident, you’ll go to the insurance company of the vehicle they’re in for the no-fault benefits. If you are sitting in an NFTA bus, the bus does carry no-fault benefits, but the law requires the individual first to go to the insurance company of any insurance that they may have on a vehicle that they own. In other words, we have to first determine whether the individual has their own insurance and then if not, make a claim to the bus company for the no-fault benefits that you would be entitled to.
