New Jersey Bus Crashes
Injuries resulting from a bus crash are often more severe than those of a typical car accident. The size and weight of buses magnify the resulting injuries and increases the likelihood of victims sustaining serious injuries.
Across the country, there are more than 30,000 commercial buses traveling on American roadways. Injured victims are likely to incur significant damages, including medical bills and lost income. In some cases, injured parties can contact a New Jersey motor vehicle accident attorney to recover lost compensation.
