Bus Accidents

Bus Accidents in New Jersey

Experienced, Compassionate Personal Injury Attorney

Approximately 300 fatal bus crashes take place each year in the United States, and roughly 20,000 injuries are caused by bus-related accidents according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. While bus accidents occur less frequently than car accidents, they can be much more catastrophic when they do. Due to their large size and heavy weight, buses can be extremely damaging in a crash both to the passengers within and any other vehicles involved. If you or someone you love was involved in a bus accident, make sure you take immediate action to fight for justice and compensation.

Automotive crashes can result in serious injuries and even death, leaving you with medical bills and an immeasurable amount of stress.

Bus Accidents in New Jersey

There are several different reasons bus accidents occur, including bus driver error, the mistakes of another driver on the road, road hazards, or vehicle malfunctions. In any case, the resulting damage and subsequent injuries can be severe. Bendit Weinstock, P.A. has represented victims of bus crashes for over 60 years.

What To Do After a Bus Accident

If you were involved in a bus accident, it’s important that you act fast to fight for the justice and compensation you deserve. When the fault lies with a private party, like the driver of a privately owned bus, your case may be handled much like any other car accident. However, if the bus you were on was owned or operated by a public entity, like a school board or New Jersey Transit, you must file your tort claim within 90 days. According to the New Jersey Tort Claim Act, injured parties have 90 days from the date of the accident to file a valid claim.

Let Our Firm Help You

Rather than try to fight this battle alone, choose to work with a skilled, seasoned firm that has your best interest at heart. We have worked on several auto accident cases, including those involving bus accidents, and we want to provide you with the zealous representation you need. Regardless of how complex your case may seem, our firm is here for you. In fact, Attorney K. Raja Bhattacharya, a partner at our firm, recently won a $1.8 million verdict on behalf of a client who was involved in an attack that took place on a bus. Each of our attorneys knows how to handle these types of cases and we have the legal expertise you need in your corner.
