Livingston County News: “Bus crash damages could be capped”

“We don’t see how Canadian law should apply to a motor vehicle accident in New York,” said plaintiffs’ attorney Marc Albert. “We are confident that New York law applies and we think we will prevail.”
“This will be a test to determine which law — the New York or Canadian — is adhered to,” Albert continued. “A lot of different factors play into it including the location of the accident and the parties involved.”
“In this case you have [Canadian] plaintiffs on a Canadian bus hitting a Pennsylvania tractor trailer. The coach company is a common carrier that makes millions upon millions of dollars availing themselves of New York roadways, constantly bringing charters in — then saying they want to not be held to the responsibilities of New York law.”
