New Jersey Bus Accident Lawyers: Bus Accidents are on the rise
Vehicular accident law is a part of a much larger body of law called personal injury law. Bus accident law is one type of vehicular accident law. Due to increased congestion on New Jersey roads, commuters, students, and tourists are using public transportation more and more each year. Accordingly, there has been an increase in New Jersey bus accidents and in bus related injuries and fatalities. Bus transportation includes school buses, charter buses, tour buses, commuter and metro buses, and commercial common carriers, and each type comes with its own set of local and federal laws that governs it.
Injuries suffered by bus accident victims can be catastrophic and even fatal, especially in accidents involving rollovers, where the victim has no seat belt and may be thrown around or even out of the bus. You may be a victim of a bus accident as either a passenger of the bus, pedestrian, or driver of, or occupant in, another vehicle involved in the accident, and you may be able to recover monetary compensation for your injuries.
If you were injured as a result of a bus accident in New Jersey, obtaining a settlement or favorable verdict may be easier because under the law the bus company owes the passenger the utmost duty of care, a higher duty of care than it owes other victims.
When determining who is responsible to compensate the victim, there are some contributing factors in the bus related accidents including driver negligence, inadequate security, dangerous roadways, weather conditions, defective automotive products, and improper bus maintenance.
