We Can Answer Your Questions and Protect Your Rights

After a bus accident, people often have several important questions:

  • Does it matter which doctor I see?
  • How will I pay for the medical care I need?
  • If I have to miss work, will I be compensated?
  • If I was hurt on a municipal bus, can I file a claim against the city or New Jersey Transit?
  • Do I need a copy of my accident report? How do I get it?
  • What papers do I need to fill out?
  • Should I talk to the bus company’s insurance company?

Bus Insurance Varies

Some buses must provide insurance for medical treatment of passengers; others do not provide this coverage. Our firm makes sure your medical bills are properly submitted to the correct insurance company. If you hire us, we handle all the necessary paperwork for you, and help get you on the road to physical and economic recovery. See our FAQ page for answers to some common questions.

Immediate Action May Be Required

Depending on whether your accident involved a commercial bus or a government vehicle (such as many school and city buses), you may have only a short amount of time in which to file a claim.
