Were you or someone you know on the NJ Transit Pascack Valley Line train that crashed into the Hoboken Terminal on September 29?
All of the victims affected by the September 29th crash must file a notice of intent to sue (pursuant to N.J.S.A 59:8-8) no later than December 29, 2016. After that date, the injury claim may be barred, under the Torts Claims Act, from being pursued. We recommend victims submit a claim as soon as possible, understanding that they can elect to not go forward with the suit at a later date.
You Will Need Experienced Legal Protection
New Jersey Transit’s self-insured status is extremely complex and difficult to navigate during injury litigation. Many attorneys may not understand the requirements of the Tort Claims Act and the 90-day time period where one must file a notice of intent to sue, which could pose many difficulties.
A lawyer’s ability to represent your case depends, to a great extent, on his or her familiarity with similar cases, court decisions, and related legal theories regarding personal injury law. These types of suits require extensive knowledge of New Jersey’s Tort Claims Act. For this reason, you should choose an attorney familiar with New Jersey’s legal decisions, as well as its regulations regarding the filing process, time limits, damage types, etc.
