Schedule a Free Consultation with our New Jersey Personal Injury Attorneys for Free Legal Advice

Millions of Americans rely on public transit as a means of commuting to work and getting around town. Despite being an essential form of transportation, buses have their own injury risks that differ from other vehicle accidents. For example, the law classifies buses, taxis and some commercial trucks as common carriers. This means that bus companies and bus drivers are held to a higher standard of providing public and passenger safety. For buses, their size, lack of seat belts and amount of people they carry often makes these common carrier accidents devastating for passengers, pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists.

Hurt in a Bus Crash?

Our Personal Injury Attorneys represent Public, School Bus, Charter and Megabus Accident Victims Throughout New Jersey.

Physical injuries are not the only damages that a bus crash victim can suffer. Both the physical and emotional injuries may require medical treatment. Surgery, physical rehabilitation, emotional therapy and medication can all result in costly medical bills. These injuries might also compromise the financial security of victims. Lost wages and medical bills are expenses that bus accident victims and their families can seek compensation for in a bus accident case.

The passengers, drivers and other people involved in bus accidents are not the only victims. For some families, fatal bus accidents can result in the devastating loss of loved ones. Financial awards for families affected by wrongful death can help pay for funeral and burial expenses as well as provide some financial relief, so families can attempt to carry on with their lives after tragedy.
