Jitney Bus Accident
Were You the Victim in a Jitney Bus Accident?
Although regular car crashes can be unpleasant or even tragic, dealing with insurance companies afterwards is often straightforward. Drivers are required to carry insurance, and in many cases, either your insurance or the other driver’s will pay the cost of injuries and property damage.
But seeking compensation for medical bills becomes a lot more complicated when you are injured in a jitney bus accident. Jitney buses are privately operated bus systems that can serve as an alternative to public transportation. The New Jersey jitney, for example, takes passengers into New York City or to various locations throughout the Garden State. Another well-known jitney transports riders from New York to the Hamptons.
Whatever your route, you have the right to expect a safe ride onboard a jitney. Sadly, however, a safe ride is not always a reality. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, people were injured in 119,000 crashes involving buses or large trucks — in 2016 alone. If you are injured in a jitney bus accident, you should be entitled to compensation for related medical bills the same way you would if you were driving your car.
But sometimes passengers on jitney buses may not be connected with the information they need after an accident. If you were injured in a jitney accident, you should be focused on recovering your physical health. But instead, you may be forced to spend your time trying to recover the insurance compensation you deserve.
