New York Personal Injury Lawyer Probes Cause of Second Tour Bus Accident


After examining reports regarding the most recent bus accidents in New York, New York bus accident lawyer David Perecman says that bus drivers must be better screened and trained.

“Bus companies are obliged to better protect their passengers,” New York bus accident lawyer Perecman said.

Currently, New York police are still investigating a fatal bus accident on the New Jersey Turnpike that happened only two days after a New York bus accident killed 15 people in the Bronx.

This bus accident killed two people - the driver and a passenger.

According to the New York Post, the tour bus slammed into a concrete overpass support and came to a halt on the grassy median of the New Jersey Turnpike.

The driver who died was thrown through the windshield of the bus. Bus drivers are required by law to wear a seat belt. Forty injured bus accident passengers needed to be sent to area hospitals.

This second bus accident came as federal bus accident investigators are still piecing together the cause of the fatal tour bus accident in New York. In the New York bus accident, apparently, the driver concealed his criminal record and driving history in order to obtain his bus license.

“Injured bus accident victims and their loved ones can often expect compensation from a bus company found at fault for failure to properly screen their bus drivers. It is a company’s responsibility to properly screen, test and qualify drivers. A bus company is also responsible for making sure drivers do not operate a bus while fatigued,” said New York bus accident lawyer Perecman.
