New Jersey crash between car and school bus injures 4

November 19, 2014

Authorities say that around 3 p.m. on Nov. 11, the 26-year-old driver of a northbound car overcompensated on a curve in the road in Princeton, striking the front left side of a southbound mini school bus. The impact caused severe damage to both vehicles, and the bus flipped onto its right side.

The driver of the car, the 44-year-old bus driver and two bus passengers, a 71-year-old teacher’s aid and a 16-year-old student, all suffered non-life-threatening injuries from the crash. All were conscious and alert, according to emergency personnel. Ambulances transported them to area hospitals for treatment.

The bus had been transporting the student home from school at the time of the accident. Police were still investigating on the day of the incident, and they had not filed any charges yet.

In any car accident resulting in an injury, the injured parties may be able to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. In many cases, the liable party’s insurance company will cover much of the damage, so the injured parties would file the claim with the carrier. Attorneys may be able to help injured parties with negotiations, which could result in a better settlement offer.

Injured parties could receive compensation for all damages they suffered as a result of the at-fault driver’s negligent actions. This could include medical bills, long-term care expenses, lost income and pain and suffering. Attorneys could help the parties with preparing claims that include all compensation to which the parties are entitled.
