New York Subway Accident Lawyers
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, and subway and train operators and their companies have 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 some other 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. We have decades of experience and have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of victims of negligence in New York and New Jersey.
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 if a train derails, rolls over, or stops abruptly. In addition, riders can be injured if they get caught in the doors of the subway, and people at a subway station can be hurt or even killed if they slip, trip, or fall or are 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, leading to assaults
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.
