MTA Driver Responsibility
When you ride a city bus, you have a reasonable expectation that the MTA bus driver has the training and responsible behavior needed to safely operate the bus. And it is true that city bus drivers are professionals who must have commercial driver’s licenses (CDL) and are held to higher standards than noncommercial drivers. They are also required to follow MTA regulations, and we will investigate your accident to find out if the driver followed regulations. Common causes of bus accidents that we see include:
- Distracted driving such as texting or talking on cell phones
- Impaired or drunk driving
- Hour and mile violations
- Speeding and reckless driving
- Other moving violations
Bus Accidents Cause Serious Injuries
No matter the cause of the accident or the type of bus involved, a collision with a bus typically results in serious injuries such as broken bones, back and spinal injuries, or traumatic head injuries. In the worst cases, a bus accident causes the loss of a loved one, or wrongful death.
Our cases include:
- Personal Injury
- Wrongful Death

- Public Transportation and City Bus Accidents and Negligence
- Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) Negligence
- Bus Terminals
