New Jersey Transit Train Accident Attorneys Guide Injured Victims Through the Complex Legal System

Helping you get the rightful compensation you deserve

Mass transit accidents, specifically those involving commuter trains, have become an unfortunately common occurrence over recent years. These types of accidents often lead to mass casualties and injuries that leave victims with long-lasting negative effects. At Brady, Brady & Reilly, LLC, our dedicated New Jersey train accident attorneys have more than 50 years of experience handling complex accident claims stemming from transit train incidents. We understand what it takes to fully investigate your case and develop a strong legal strategy designed to help you recover full and fair compensation for your injuries.

Providing personalized representation throughout each step of the legal process

Passenger train accidents are catastrophic events that have the potential to lead to devastating injuries and even death. Following an accident, you may be permanently disabled, unable to return to work and without quality of life for years to come. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, you may be able to recover monetary compensation for:

  • Medical expenses and treatment costs
  • Current and future lost wages
  • Emotional distress, pain and suffering

However, there are typically strict statutes of limitation in place that limit the amount of time you have to file a claim. Typically, personal injury claims must be filed within two years from the date the injury occurred. Notice of your intention to file a claim against NJ TRANSIT or PATH (Port Authority of New York & New Jersey) must be submitted to the appropriate office within 90 days of the incident that caused your injuries — unless you were under 18 at the time of the accident, in which case you must file within 90 days of your 18th birthday. Missing this 90 day deadline can permanently prevent you from recovering the damages to which you are entitled. Contact our law firm immediately after a train or bus accident so that we can send your notice promptly and begin investigating your case. We work diligently to ensure that your case is handled efficiently and within all applicable legal timelines.

Commuter train accidents are caused by a myriad of factors

Investigations surrounding mass transit accidents are often complex and lengthy. There are details involved that may impact determining how and why an accident occurred. Some of the most common cause of transit train accidents include:

  • Failure to properly inspect and maintain the train
  • Negligent operation of the train
  • Improper or faulty repairs
  • Failure to properly maintain and repair train tracks

If you’ve been injured in a train accident, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible after an accident to preserve your rights. You deserve a staunch advocate on your side to protect your best interests.
