Bus and Transit Accidents

Thousands of people in Jersey City use public transportation to commute to work such as N.J. Transit buses, ferryboats and the Hudson-Bergen light rail trains. Unfortunately, accidents involving buses, boats and trains do occur every day and can result in serious injuries.

The attorneys at Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. represent people who have been injured in public transit accidents caused by negligence or misconduct. Our experienced attorneys understand the special notification requirements and applicable laws that apply when bringing an injury claim against a public entity such as N.J.

Workers’ Compensation in Jersey City

Jersey City is a major employment center in the New York metro area. Certain types of jobs such as construction work and warehouse work have a higher risk of work-related injuries. But accidents can occur at any workplace, resulting in serious injuries and missed work. If you are an employee and have been injured on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits including fully paid medical care, replacement of lost wages and permanency benefits.

In some accidents, you may be able to file a liability claim against another person or company (not your employer or co-worker) that caused the accident, demanding compensation. This is what we lawyers call a third party claim. Often, multiple subcontractors are working on a construction site. If one company creates unsafe conditions that cause a worker for another company to be injured, the injured worker may have a right to collect workers’ compensation and to sue the company that caused the accident.

Dangerous and Defective Products

Manufacturers of factory machinery, prescription drugs, medical devices, and consumer products have a legal duty to produce products that are safe when used as directed and to warn of any known dangers. Unfortunately, some products have defects that make them unsafe and result in serious injuries to consumers.

Dangerous product cases are complex and require a thorough investigation by an experienced product liability attorney in collaboration with industrial design experts. Our attorneys have successfully handled product liability cases involving:

  • Manufacturing machinery
  • Unsafe prescription drugs
  • Mesothelioma/asbestos
  • Defective medical devices such as hip replacements

If you were seriously injured by a piece of industrial machinery, a dangerous drug or other type of unsafe product in Jersey City, you should contact Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. to learn about your legal options.
