Injured in a New York City Trucking Accident or Bus Crash?
Due to sheer size alone, injuries sustained from a truck or bus accident can be very serious. Semis, 18-wheelers, trucks, tractor-trailers, commercial vehicles and buses are often involved in fatal accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a New York truck or bus accident, seek legal representation immediately.

Truck or Bus Crash Injury? Why the 'Black Box' Can Be the Key to Winning
Many late model cars, trucks and buses are equipped with engine computers, commonly called "black boxes," which record the speed and application of the brake immediately before impact in an accident.
It is important that such data be preserved, downloaded and analyzed in order to determine the speed and when the brake was applied. At Weisfuse & Weisfuse, LLP, we work with highly qualified automotive, highway and biomechanical engineers to assist in proving our cases.
We are experienced and qualified to assist clients in vehicle collision situations such as the following:
- Private vehicle crashes involving cars, pickup trucks, motorcycles, SUVs and other vehicles on New York streets and highways. We can pursue damages when another driver is at fault.
- Commercial vehicle accidents involving delivery trucks, semis, heavy equipment and other vehicles driven for a commercial purpose or by an on-the-job driver. We can work to hold drivers, their employers and the vehicle owners responsible for accidents that occur due to driver negligence, negligent maintenance or vehicle defect, including exploding truck rims.
- Bus accidents: If you are riding a municipal or commercial bus that is involved in a crash, or if you were struck by a bus, you can sue for compensation. As with commercial vehicles, the owner of the bus or the employer of the driver could be liable for your bus injuries.
Trucks and buses involved in interstate commerce are subject to certain federal regulations establishing safety standards that apply to both the vehicle and the driver. Our attorneys have the knowledge and skills to help with these interstate issues. Seek our quality legal services today.
