New Jersey Transit Accidents

The New Jersey Transit system is one of the largest, busiest public transportation systems in the country, used by nearly a million riders every day. Unfortunately, those trains and buses are frequently involved in accidents, injuries passengers, pedestrians or motor vehicle drivers.

The law firm of Smith Magram Michaud Colonna, P.C., has represented victims of New Jersey Transit bus, commuter rail and light rail accidents in Burlington County, Camden County and surrounding areas of South Jersey and Central New Jersey. Our knowledge of the special statutes governing transit accidents enables to preserve clients' rights and maximize their recovery of damages.

Special Considerations In Public Transit Accidents

Suing the New Jersey Transit Authority (NJ Transit) for personal injury is different than suing another motorist. A different set of statutes applies, including a shorter window to file notice of claim. Contacting our attorneys early in the process can improve your chances of success and the amount of your recovery.

We investigate promptly to secure important evidence and to file the notice within the 90-day period. After the right to sue is properly preserved, we can take the appropriate time to work up the case. We work with clients, medical providers and other professionals to understand the injuries and the appropriate compensation.
