North Bergen, NJ - Teen Passenger Injured When Driver Collides With Parked Cars, Utility Pole at Kennedy Blvd and 26th St

When you accept a ride from another driver or use mass transit, you are putting your life in their hands and their actions could have a lasting impact on your life. Regardless of if you are a passenger in a private vehicle, train, taxi, or bus, an operator’s or driver’s negligence could bring devastating results. 

Vehicle accidents can leave their victims with serious injuries, such as broken bones, spinal cord damage, concussions, and more. If you or a loved one was significantly injured as a passenger in a public vehicle or private car, you should weigh your legal options. In most car accidents, at least one driver is at fault.

If you were hurt while using public transportation, you might need to take legal action against a municipality.
