Subrogation/Property Damage Claims

/ 0 Comments

In today’s economic environment, a bus or limousine company’s ability to recover the cost of repair for damage to its vehicles is more important than ever.  Insurance companies are not voluntarily making payments and they have to be pushed very hard to do so. When your claim is being handled by an attorney, they realize that you mean business, and the insurance companies’ costs will rise if the matter goes into litigation.  Therefore, they will take the claim more seriously.

Our law firm specializes in first party property damage claims for buses (coaches, school buses, minibuses, vans) and for limousines (sedans and stretches).  We are known in the bus industry as subrogation attorneys.  We work on a contingent fee basis, so no recovery, no fee.  However, please understand that we do not take cases where it is clear that your driver is at fault.  As a consequence, we recover for the damage in virtually all cases, and frequently recover for loss of use of the vehicle.

The recoveries that we may obtain on your behalf go straight to your bottom line – very important today.  So, if you need a subrogation attorney to recover for your company’s damages arising from motor vehicle accidents in NJ and NY, contact us through the website address noted below.  A majority of our cases are in Essex, Passaic, Bergen, Hudson, Union and Morris Counties, but we are not limited geographically in NJ unless the case arises in South Jersey and involves too small a sum of money to justify litigating, i.e. $2,500.00 or less.

Municipal Regulation of Transportation

/ 0 Comments

Municipalities from time to time try to exert control over transportation operations conducted within or through their boundaries.  Unfortunately, they can only regulate taxi’s and limousines.  Buses are regulated by State and Federal agencies who issue approval for bus routes or charter operations.  Municipalities can regulate the location of bus stops only, and can regulate traffic over city streets, if reasonably required for safety, i.e. through residential areas.

States can regulate safety, through roadside and semi-annual inspections, and insurance, although Federal insurance requirements are substantially higher than State mandated limits.
