New Jersey Transit Bus Accident Lawyer
If you were injured on a bus in New Jersey, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries and the pain and suffering. New Jersey Transit Buses are common carriers. This means that they carry passengers from point A to point B. In doing so, they must take the utmost care in the operation and maintenance of the bus. Drivers must be trained appropriately, and the buses must be kept in very good working order. However, this is usually not the case. Bus drivers make mistakes, and defects exist which are not properly handled all the time.
At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., we see bus accident victims on a frequent basis. Many times, the victims are the result of bad bus operation or function. If you were the victim of an accident on a New Jersey Transit Bus, please, call our office. The consultation is always free.
New Jersey is a no-fault state, and when a bus from New Jersey Transit is involved in an accident, the question arises, who will pay my medical bills? A bus in New Jersey is not an automobile, and the bus is not required to pay your Medical Bills. If you have no automobile in your name with insurance, and no one in your family that resides with you owns an automobile, then you must use your health insurance. If you have automobile insurance then you may qualify for extended coverage.
