Protecting The Rights Of Victims Injured In Train and Public Transportation Accidents
In Hackensack and other New Jersey communities flanking New York, mass transit — buses and trains — is a primary mode of transportation. With millions of people using these services, it’s no surprise that injuries involving trains, buses and other modes of public transportation are relatively common.
Transit Cases Can Be Incredibly Complex
If you were injured in an accident involving a mass transit vehicle, numerous questions must be answered: Was the operator of the vehicle at fault? Did a design defect contribute to the accident? How severe are the injuries? Will the injuries have lasting effects on your physical and mental health?
At Faugno & Associates, L.L.C., we know how to handle complex personal injury cases involving mass transit. With more than three decades of legal experience, our attorneys have the skill and resources to properly build strong claims and pursue just compensation. We carry out in-depth investigations, hold negligent parties — including municipalities and state and federal systems — accountable and explore all options for obtaining compensation.

Chances are that if you have been injured in an accident with a train or bus, you have suffered debilitating, maybe even life-threatening injuries. Perhaps you lost a limb or are otherwise unable to continue your previous line of work. You may have also suffered psychological injuries, such as post-traumatic stress, that can adversely affect you for years down the road. We will work with medical specialists to see that you receive proper care and that your award or settlement reflects your immediate and future medical needs.
