Bus Crash in New Jersey Injures 14
Bus accidents can be extremely serious, and are often a prime target for lawsuits. Drivers in large buses assume liability for the passengers on the automobile, and if those people are harmed because of a crash, they have the right to seek compensation. Typically, passengers can seek compensation from the bus driver or the bus company that supplied the vehicle. In some cases, another vehicle may be liable for the accident and may be required to pay compensation to the bus passengers that were injured.
New York Injury News writes that a recent bus crash in New Jersey injured 14 people when the automobile slid down an embankment for unknown reasons. The tour bus careened off of Route 295 at about 3 p.m. The New Jersey State Police report that there were at least 30 people on board at the time of the crash, and almost half of them have reported injuries.
Responding emergency medical crews transported one passenger to a hospital for a minor hip injury. Another 10 patients arrived at the medical facility later with minor injuries. Four people were later transported to other medical centers for treatment. Investigations are underway, and the highway patrol wants to determine why the bus slid off of the road. Pedestrians have the right to seek compensation from the tour bus company because of the negligence that caused the incident.
After a full investigation is completed, the plaintiffs will have more evidence and be able to show if the driver was responsible for the accident.
