Buses, trains, subways, airlines and other forms of mass transit offer transportation services to the public for a fee. They are in the business to safely transport passengers from one location to another. When they fail to do so, obtain experienced legal help.
At the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C., we are committed to holding at-fault parties accountable for damages inflicted on passengers. We have decades of experience in proving fault when liability is initially unclear. You can trust our law firm to help preserve your legal right to a full financial recovery.
Important deadlines must be met in public transportation accident claims. If you were injured on a New Jersey Transit bus, you must notify the New Jersey Transit within 90 days of the accident that you intend to file a personal injury lawsuit.
If you wait too long, you will lose your right to recover financial compensation. Don’t take that risk. Consult our law firm to protect your legal rights. We will guide you through the legal process, outlining the right steps to take immediately following a public transportation accident.
Determining Negligence in Public Transportation Accidents
Determining fault in public transportation accidents is particularly challenging. Mass transits are typically backed by extensive governmental or corporate dollars to limit exposure from personal injury lawsuits. At the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C., we have the skills and tenacity to take on large, powerful entities.
Personal injury attorney Jeffrey S. Hasson negotiates with at-fault insurance companies from a position of strength. He develops compelling legal arguments outlining liability factors in catastrophic and fatal public transportation accidents, including:
- Public bus accidents
- School bus accidents
- Commuter train accidents
- Subway accidents
- Taxi cab accidents
- Shuttle van accidents
- Railroad accidents
- Ferry boat accidents
- Aviation accidents
We will not hesitate to hire the right technical experts to determine liability. We work with engineers, accident scene reconstructionists and mechanical experts to evaluate property damage and wreckage from the accident scene. We also consult with OSHA and safety experts to understand if any state or federal regulations were violated putting passengers at-risk.
We seek to evaluate public transportation accidents from the viewpoint of a juror. Our ability to prepare every claim to be successful in trial helps us recover maximum compensation for accident victims and their families. If the settlement offer is too low, insurance companies know we will not hesitate to secure a favorable trial verdict.
