The New Jersey Transit (NJT) injury report is called a Report of Personal Injury. It is important that the report be completed accurately. Any information regarding the cause of the injury should be included.
The important sections of the Report of Injury are:
Circumstances: In this section, it is important to list any defective equipment, unsafe conditions or other factors that may have caused or contributed to your injury. Do not include any extra information that is not relevant to the cause of your injury.
Nature of injury: If you are experiencing any pain or discomfort as the result of the incident, you should seek medical care. Under the FRSA, the railroad cannot interfere in any way with your medical care. In addition, if requested, the railroad must take you to the closest appropriate medical facility. Click here.
