Hundreds of Millions of Dollars Won; Call Today

The subway system is perhaps the most dangerous means of public transportation in New York City, yet thousands of people depend on subway trains for safe transportation every day. Subway train operators and the companies they work for have a huge responsibility and a legal obligation to ensure that these riders are transported safely to their destinations.

If you were seriously injured or if your loved one was killed in a subway train accident, you could have grounds to file a legal claim against the at-fault party. Depending on the circumstances of your case, this might include the subway train operator, the subway company, the party responsible for subway train maintenance, or another entity. We strongly encourage you to reach out to our New York subway accident attorneys at Simonson Goodman Platzer PC for help with your claim.

How Subway & Train Accidents Occur

There are countless ways in which a person can be injured while riding a subway train or while in a subway or train station. Subway or train passengers can be seriously injured when a train derails, rolls over, or stops abruptly. Riders can also be injured if they get caught in the train doors, slip and fall at the train station, or get pushed onto the tracks.

Often, these accidents are the result of:

  • Subway/train operator negligence
  • Poor subway/train management negligence
  • Inadequate subway or train station maintenance
  • Dangerous conditions in a subway or train station
  • Negligent hiring or supervision
  • Defective parts or products
  • Negligent security

Investigating a train accident in New York City is not an easy task. There are countless witness statements, police reports, video footage, and other evidence to collect; not something that the average person would be capable of. However, an experienced subway accident attorney from Simonson Goodman Platzer has the resources and experience to determine exactly how your train accident occurred and who is responsible. You can arrange a free consultation with our firm today. We offer a no recovery, no fee guarantee!

What to Do If You Are Involved in a Subway or Train Accident

If you or a family member has been injured in a subway or train accident, it is important to write down everything you can recall about the circumstances surrounding your accident or attack, including the number of the closest stairway or platform and contact information for eyewitnesses. It is also very important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost income, among other damages, but you only have a limited time in which to make a claim.
