Watchung, NJ - Three Injured in NJ Transit Bus Accident on Rt 22

Throughout the country, millions of people rely on buses to get to work, school, run errands, and many other daily activities. For thousands of New Jersey residents, the bus is their only or primary mode of transportation. Taking into consideration the number of buses that traverse the state’s roadways, some accidents are inevitable.

A report published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that an estimated 500 people are killed nationwide in bus accidents every year and hundreds are injured daily.

Our bus injury lawyers in New Jersey know that bus accidents have both instant and long-term repercussions. Victims amass huge medical bills, endure pain and suffering, and many are forced to take a leave of absence while they recuperate. Serious and catastrophic injuries can leave bus accident victims dealing with diminished earning capacity and decreased quality of life.  

Passengers and pedestrians are seldom at fault for bus accidents and, therefore, most assuredly entitled to compensation for their damages.
