Subway & Train Accident Attorneys

If you have been injured on a train operated by the MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) or SIRT in New York City, the LIRR (Long Island Railroad), the Metro-North, Amtrak or PATH trains (Port Authority Trans Hudson), you may be entitled to compensation if the accident was caused as a result of the negligent operation of the train by the operator. In New York, hundreds of thousands of us rely upon the transit system to bring them and their children to and from work and school in a safe manner. The operators of trains are expected to receive specialized training, and it is their responsibility to ensure the safety of their passengers. In this connection, train operators are not only trained to avoid collisions, they are also trained to avoid abrupt stops and sudden starts which can cause innocent passengers to be thrown to the ground, or strike other passengers or objects on the train.

Our train accident attorneys handle cases involving the following:

Recently, there have been several train accidents in New York that have resulted in numerous catastrophic injuries and deaths which were caused by the train operators’ inattentiveness due to their use of a cell phones or lack of sleep. After such an accident, the appropriate agency will normally conduct their own internal investigation which will include a supervisor determining the cause of the accident, and inquiring whether the train operator violated safety regulations or standards. However, since the supervisors and train operators are usually employed by the same entity, it is wise to have an independent investigation conducted on your behalf by your attorneys.

Further, the entities which control subway stations and subway cars also have a duty to ensure that passengers have a safe means to enter and exit a train. In this respect, there are strict requirements prohibiting an excessive “gap” between the subway car and the platform. On many occasions, the gap is too large causing an innocent victim to fall through the gap and sustain injuries.
