New Jersey Bus Accident
Thousands of bus accidents occur each year. Due to the combination of lack of safety restraints, size and weight of the bus, injuries resulting from bus accidents are often severe or even life threatening.
In a bus accident, liability can reside in different places depending on who owned the bus, what caused the accident, and whether the bus was privately or publicly managed. Liability for the accident can fall on one or more of the following:
- The bus driver
- The bus management company
- Parts manufacturer
- Third party contracted to repair and maintain the bus
- Other negligent drivers
- Government entities, if a public bus
Insurance companies may be quick to settle but it will most likely offer a low-ball settlement. Hiring a bus accident personal injury attorney can make all the difference in getting the full compensation you deserve to cover your current /future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, pain and suffering and more!
