Trains are often part of government agencies. Accidents that occur on these transportation assets may be subject to special notice requirements. Accident victims may also have a more limited timeframe to pursue a personal injury claim. If you miss any of the filing deadlines or forget to notify the responsible party properly, the chances of obtaining monetary compensation for your injury may be hurt. That’s why it’s important to call a lawyer as soon as possible after your accident so that we can make sure all deadlines are met.
New Jersey trains often cross into nearby states, including New York and Pennsylvania. Because these vehicles cross state lines, federal law often preempts New Jersey state law. These laws may include the Federal Transit Administration rules or Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration rules, as well as the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA).
