Understanding New Jersey Bus Laws

New Jersey bus laws are designed to protect all road users, including passengers and pedestrians. However, for nonlawyers, understanding these laws and the prospect of navigating a lawsuit can feel overwhelming. Fear not. The compassionate lawyers at Meirowitz & Wasserberg are here to help. This section discusses two of the most important laws that will impact your bus accident case in New Jersey. 

1. Comparative Negligence

At-fault parties in your bus accident case may include private bus companies (e.g., Greyhound), public transit authorities (e.g., NJ TRANSIT), drivers in other vehicles, disruptive passengers, negligent pedestrians, and even product manufacturers if their defective products contributed to an accident. Meirowitz & Wasserberg is ready to identify all sources of liability in your case. 

However, one of the most important laws impacting personal injury cases in New Jersey is the doctrine of comparative negligence. This law is designed to distribute liability fairly among all parties who contributed to the underlying cause of an accident. 

How does it work? On the one hand, if an injured victim happens to contribute, say, 20 percent to the cause of an accident, their compensation will be reduced proportionately. On the other hand, if someone bringing a lawsuit contributed more than 50 percent to the cause of an accident, the law prohibits them from recovering compensation from other at-fault parties. 

As you might imagine, defendants in bus accident lawsuits will strive to show that injured victims contributed more than 50 percent. Therefore, it is essential that they work with a skilled attorney capable of pushing back against these manipulative tactics. 

2. Statute of Limitations on Bus Accidents in New Jersey

The statute of limitations is one of the most important laws governing any personal injury case. This law simply sets a deadline after which injured victims can no longer file their lawsuit seeking compensation against an at-fault party. 

For example, most bus accident claims in New Jersey must be filed within two years after the incident. Further, if your claim is against a government entity (e.g., NJ TRANSIT), you only have 90 days from the date of your bus accident to file an official notice.

Your attorney may be able to find an exception to these deadlines where needed. However, the governing deadline is normally strictly enforced, and failure to file before the deadline passes normally results in your case being dismissed in court. The best way to avoid this is by consulting with an experienced bus crash attorney as soon as possible. 

Comprehensive Support for Bus Accident Victims

Bus accidents can result in catastrophic injuries and overwhelming medical bills. At Meirowitz & Wasserberg, we understand how difficult this can be for our clients and their families.
