New York City: Legal Help After a Bus or Taxi Accident
If you are hit by a bus or a taxi in New York City, you have the same right to take legal action as you would if you were struck by a passenger car or other motor vehicle. With help from a personal injury attorney, you can fight for a fair financial settlement to compensate you for past and future medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
Andrew L. Weitz & Associates, P.C., is a hard-hitting New York City personal injury law firm with a prestigious pedigree. Founded in 2004 by renowned personal injury attorney Harvey Weitz and his son, Andrew Weitz, our law firm focuses entirely on personal injury litigation.

Advanced Experience With Claims Against the Transit Authority
Personal injury lawsuits against the city of New York or other local governments proceed differently than personal injury lawsuits against private defendants. Special rules of procedure exist when an individual attempts to recover compensation from the New York—area transit authorities after an injury accident.
90 Days: After an injury accident on New York City public transit, the law requires the victim to file a formal notice of claim against the city within 90 days of the incident. The only exception is in cases of extreme disability or death.
At Andrew L. Weitz & Associates, P.C., we have decades of experience handling injury claims against the city and county of New York and throughout the five boroughs on behalf of drivers and pedestrians or bicyclists injured in an accident with a public bus or a private taxi.
