We Protect Bus Passengers' Rights After Accidents

In fiscal year 2010, New Jersey Transit provided ridership on nearly 3,100 busses, most owned and operated by NJ Transit and some by private contract carriers. While the majority of bus rides occur without incident, there are occasional accidents and injuries.

If you or a family member has been injured in a bus accident with a NJ Transit bus or private coach, you will need help getting compensation for your losses. The transit authority and the bus company will have teams of lawyers working to protect them after an accident. Without representation, you will be at a disadvantage.

To schedule an appointment with our attorneys, call 609-482-3138 or 866-437-1189 or contact us online. We offer free initial consultations for personal injury cases.

Special Considerations of Bus Accidents

Bus accidents include collisions with other vehicles, injuries to passengers and injuries to pedestrians. Some of the most frequent types of accidents include:

  • Traffic accidents, including rollover accidents
  • A collision or sudden stop that causes bus passengers to fall
  • Hitting a pedestrian or cyclist
  • Bus doors closing on a passenger boarding or exiting the bus

We can investigate the accident and examine maintenance and safety checks, and the condition of the vehicle. We may also investigate the driver's commercial and personal driving records.

If the driver, bus company, transit authority or the driver of another vehicle is responsible for your injuries, we can hold them accountable. Depending on the details of the accident, you may be entitled to compensation from multiple liable parties.

Our attorneys seek compensation to cover medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and additional expenses. We know how to fight commercial insurance carriers and their lawyers, aggressively pursuing your claim until we get results.
