Powerful Legal Help After a Train or Subway Accident
Public transit is a way of life in and around New York City. We take the subway, we take the bus, we ride Amtrak trains, the Long Island Railroad and the Metro North Line. We commute to and from work, we travel to and from social events, and we use public transit to carry out errands — every day.
Given our reliance on public transit, the frequency of train and subway accidents should not be surprising. However, it doesn't matter how common train and subway accidents are — when it happens to you or a family member, a train accident can turn a normal day into a nightmare.
Sadly, trying to obtain financial compensation for injuries after a train or subway accident in New York City can be yet another nightmare. The NYC Transit Authority can be a difficult opponent, and without smart and knowledgeable legal help, you may find yourself caught in an endless struggle — simply to get fair compensation for your injuries.
