New York Texting by Bus Drivers

Texting by bus drivers is an unfortunate phenomenon and one that is illegal. Unfortunately, when the hiring company does not do the appropriate background checks, does not engage in regular bus safety checks that could identify problems early on and doesn't supervise the bus driver, this type of distracted driving behavior is common. A texting by bus drivers accident lawyer in New York will be able to assist you immediately after you've been hurt.

A texting by bus drivers accident attorney in New York will prepare your personal injury case and present it to the court so you have the best possible chance of getting the compensation you need. In these difficult situations, no one should have to suffer but a New York texting by bus accidents lawyer will be able to show that the bus driver, and potentially his or her employer company, is responsible for the injuries you sustained because of this illegal behavior.

Many people are under the impression that they have more of an ability to focus while texting and driving than they do. A bus driver should never engage in texting and driving because he or she is often responsible for numerous passengers inside the vehicle. Glancing down for just a couple of seconds is enough to pull his or her focus away from the job at hand and this could put everyone inside the vehicle at risk. Because of the serious consequences associated with these problems, the right lawyer needs to be retained immediately on behalf of the victims.

Recovery of compensation is a primary goal for people in this situation and this case needs to be put together immediately with all necessary evidence to support you in the best possible way. Finding an attorney who has a track record of holding these bus companies responsible and illustrating the necessary evidence that shows the driver was texting at or near the time of the accident is important. You should never count on the bus company or their insurance carrier to represent your interests.

In fact, in many cases, they dispatch accident investigation teams to scene as soon as possible to look for evidence that could show that you are overstating your injuries.

This is where your evidence becomes crucial and this is why it should always be handled by an experienced attorney who knows this landscape and knows the common tactics engaged in by the insurance company. Knowing who could be held liable and putting together a compelling case against that party is crucial for paying your medical bills.

When you have a lawyer who is not afraid to back down and one who will work towards a settlement where possible, but also be prepared to show the severity of your injuries in court, you can gain much more peace of mind and spend your focus and time where it needs to be most. After you've been critically injured in a bus accident, your mental state can be affected by the legal case if you don't have an attorney who's handling everything for you.

You already have enough to worry about after such a devastating injury and you need support from a lawyer who can help you in full and one who will keep you advised about your case and give you the necessary support. Your attorney should be willing to communicate with you as your case unfolds and to help you with all of your concerns and questions. You can make an informed decision about your future when a settlement offer is presented and the right lawyer will give you a tremendous amount of peace of mind when you find yourself in this situation of dealing with the aftermath of a devastating bus accident.

Client Reviews
When my mom, who is suffering from dementia, faced a slip and fall personal injury lawsuit, I contacted Stephen Bilkis of the Law Offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates. Not only did he provide a strategy for defending the claim, he also advised me on steps to take to avoid future personal liability. Whether you are the defendant or plaintiff in an injury case, I highly recommend Mr. Bilkis. S.M.
From the very first phone call to Stephen Bilkis' office, the staff was extremely polite and helpful in assisting me. Mr. Bilkis was honest and upfront with me from the beginning in what he projected the outcome of my case would be; in the end we got better results than either of us anticipated. He was very genuine and compassionate in understanding my situation and how this legal matter could effect not only myself but my family as well. I highly recommend this law firm and will most definitely continue using them for any future legal needs. Jarrett
I had my first encounter with Mr. Stephen Bilkis three years ago over the phone. He and his staff have been nothing but courtesy and professional. Their hard work ended with a large six-figure settlement for my case. I would highly recommend you contact his office. I want to give a special THANK YOU to Ms. Tricia Krapf. She always made me feel like a priority and was always kind and professional over the phone and email. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal representation. Celesta
