New York and New Jersey Public Transportation Injury Attorneys
Accidents involving city buses, the subway, or commuter trains must be investigated thoroughly as soon as possible after they occur. Both the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and New Jersey Transit (NJT) have teams of investigators who are responsible for collecting evidence and conducting an investigation into the cause of a public transportation accident. In order to ensure key eyewitnesses are located, conductors or drivers interviewed, and physical evidence preserved, the law office of Albert Buzzetti & Associates initiates the investigation process as soon as possible when seeking damages for a bus injury or subway accident. We like to ask drivers and conductors to submit to an independent lab test to see if drugs or alcohol is in their system, while reviewing other physical evidence from the scene of an accident. Our goal is to preserve a balance of power in the courtroom while ensuring nothing is missed or ignored during a public transportation investigation.
In accidents involving bus injuries, subway accidents, and commuter trains, injury victims have only a limited of time to bring an action against the MTA or NJT.

Determining the Cost of a Serious Bus Injury or Subway Accident
Most mass transit injuries can involve head trauma, broken bones, back injuries, broken legs, and soft tissue injuries. Especially in head and back injuries, complications weeks or months after an accident can substantially increase the cost of your injury. Our attorneys work closely with a wide variety of medical experts in order to determine the extent and nature of your injuries.
We also ask medical economists to provide cost projections for the expenses associated with future medical treatment, lost earnings, medical equipment, and pain and suffering. Our lawyers have the resources and experience needed to challenge the findings of the MTA's and NJT's investigators and experts.
