Injuries resulting from a bus accident include:

The attorney at NJ Hurt Law understands that injuries from a bus accident are just as serious as a car or truck accident. Most of the time, safety measures are not strictly enforced. Lack of seatbelts alone can cause serious injury. Injured passengers, pedestrians and drivers can be financially compensated for damages and losses resulting from a bus accident. Unfortunately, recovering this compensation can be very difficult. This is why having the right attorney on your side makes a great difference in your bus accident outcomes.

How Can I Be Compensated From A Bus Accident?

Medical Expenses

hospital costs, doctor visits, medical equipment, medical transportation and more are labeled under this category

Loss of Wages

Even if you are unable to work, bills still need to be paid. In a bus accident you may be eligible for compensation for wages expected to be earned it you have not been in the accident.

Pain and Suffering

Compensation for the physical pain suffered from injuries resulting from the bus accident. Compensation is based on injury type, extent of pain and expected duration of suffering.

Mental Anguish

Emotional suffering can also result from a bus accident. Grief embarrassment, nervousness, worry, and fright are only a few examples for emotional suffering.

Loss of Consortium

If a spouse is lost due to a bus accident, the marital partner of the deceased spouse may be able to recover marital benefits, affection and comfort.

Legal assistance for everyone

Negligence is established after four elements have been confirmed

Duty of Care Breached

Injuries happen when at-fault drivers neglect their duty of care. If a reasonable driver in a similar instance acted differently to prevent injury, a breach of duty might have occurred.

Duty of Care Present

Did the at-fault party have a legal obligation to reasonably prevent injuries to themselves and others?


You (or, preferably, your attorney) have to prove your injuries stemmed from the breached duty of care. Put differently, the motorcycle accident could have been prevented if the defendant had upheld their duty of care.


If you lost money from missing work, property damage, or medical bills, damages are present. Your lawyer can also obtain compensation if you experienced emotional damages, not just financial.
If you’re curious if your motorcycle accident claim is valid, let NJ Hurt Law pair you with a specialized attorney who can answer that question. Remember – a strong case begins directly after your accident with qualified representation.
