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.
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.
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, and you only have a limited time in which to make a claim.
