New York, NY (PRWEB) September 19, 2013
A collision between a Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) bus and a car whose driver was fleeing the police, left 41 people injured, including 12 seriously. According to a Sept. 9 CBS New York news report, the injury collision occurred at the intersection of Albany Avenue and Herkimer Street in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn the afternoon of Sept. 9.
The article states that the driver of the car, a Chevrolet Camaro, was fleeing authorities and ran a stop sign striking the B15 bus. Twelve people were seriously injured while the remaining people sustained relatively minor injuries, the report states. Responders used the Jaws of Life to pull victims out of the wreckage, according to the article.
Bus accidents often result in significant injuries, especially for the passengers not restrained by seatbelts, said New York personal injury lawyer Kenneth A. Wilhelm. "We have represented bus accident victims who have suffered severe or even catastrophic injuries that have left them permanently injured or disabled."
Victims of these types of accidents and their families are left facing enormous financial challenges, Wilhelm says. "How do they pay their medical bills? How do they meet household expenses when they can't go back to work? What if they can never go back to work or earn a livelihood?"
Victims of MTA bus accidents have legal rights, Wilhelm stated. "When the accident is caused by another person's negligence or wrongdoing, victims can seek compensation for their injuries, damages and losses. It may be difficult to think about filing a lawsuit when you are injured. However, it is crucial that victims and their families obtain the support, guidance and counsel they need during these challenging times."
