Injuries From Bus Accidents

As bus passengers don't have seatbelts, the potential for severe injuries is high. Common injuries include:
Bone fractures
Torn tendons and ligaments
Bruising
Burns
Facial injuries
Head injuries
Skull fractures
Suffering from severe injuries in a bus accident can result in immediate and lasting repercussions. The aftermath involves not only medical expenses and pain and suffering but also potential time off work for recovery. Individuals with serious or catastrophic injuries find themselves confronting a future where the impact extends to both their future earning potential and overall quality of life.
It's important to note that passengers and pedestrians are seldom responsible for causing bus accidents, making them highly likely to be eligible for damages due to injuries. In New Jersey, claims stemming from bus accidents commonly encompass the following:
Current and Future medical and therapy costs related to the bus accident injuries
Income losses and anticipated reductions in earning capacity
Adjustments to home and vehicle infrastructure (such as installing wheelchair ramps)
Compensation for pain, disfigurement, and a reduced quality of life
Damages for wrongful death in instances where a loved one dies

In New Jersey, there is a time limit for injury claims; typically two years from the date of injury. Filing a claim against a government agency has a shorter time limit, with notice of intention to file a claim required within 90 days of the incident. So, act fast before it's too late.
