Public transit is an important part of our economy, environment and everyday lives. In fact, 35 million times each weekday, people board public transportation. Mass transit options save us money, while creating jobs and saving the earth from environmental pollution. While taking advantage of public transportation — such as buses, taxis, or commuter trains — can make our lives easier, they can also put us in situations where we are not in control of the outcome.
Mass transit accidents are easy to deal with when you have an experienced personal injury attorney to help you through. At the Law Offices of Anthony Carbone, our award-winning Jersey City mass transit accident lawyer will help you handle the difficulties of filing a claim for your public transit accident.
What we can do for you
Different than a car accident, a public transit accident claim against New Jersey Transit has a statute of limitations of only six months. Any complaint you have must be reported to and investigated by NJ Transit, who will build a case against you. To get the most amount of evidence to support your case in this short amount of time, we have independent investigators who will comb through every piece of information to build you the strongest case possible.
Common Types of Public Transit Accidents
Injuries that you may sustain in a mass transit accident can be just as severe as those from any type of auto accident. Such incidents include:
- Sudden stops
- Being knocked down
- Train derailment
- A crime caused by negligent security
- Falling after a train or bus pulls away
- Getting caught in shutting doors
These types of injuries could include broken bones, back, neck or even head injuries. You may be faced with extended hospital bills and could miss work time.
