Mother Pushing Stroller Struck By Bus in Queens, New York

Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC || 21-Nov-2016

A 43-year-old woman was pushing her 3-year-old daughter in Queens, New York when a city bus struck her in a pedestrian accident. Witnesses reported that the woman was pinned under the front wheels of the bus briefly. The child was not injured, but the bus wheel crushed the woman’s leg. An ambulance rushed her to a local hospital where she was listed in critical condition but has since improved. Police indicated that there have not been any charges filed against the driver and none are expected. Recently the Mayor unveiled a plan “Vision Zero” to help reduce traffic crashes and fatalities in the city. The city bus union also said that it would welcome any street changes to help save lives.

Pedestrians are at extreme risk with more than 150,000 being treated in the United States for crashes with vehicles. Emergency rooms across the nation treat pedestrians every day for injuries that can range from minor to life-threatening. Luckily, we have easy access to doctors and medical staff that can treat our injuries. But with this come medical bills, possible physical therapy and lost time wages from work. It can be overwhelming, exhausting and quite frightening to figure out how you and your family will pay these expenses.

An experienced attorney will assess your situation, determine if a case is liable and help the victim receive the care and compensation they deserve.
