Bus Accidents in New York
Buses are some of the largest vehicles on New York roads, which means that they are capable of causing extensive harm in the event of an accident. These vehicles are known as common carriers, which means that they are expected to take passengers from one point to another for a fee on our roads. These accidents happen in many different areas but intersections are known for being some of the most common. In just one recent year, over 2.5 million intersection accidents took place due to the outright recklessness of others. The truth is, many bus collisions can be prevented on our roads but continue to happen due to negligent acts.
