Your Legal Resource For Subway And Train Accidents
Millions of people rely on commuter trains and the subway system in the tri-state area to get to and from work, to visit relatives, and go about their daily activities. Train and subway operators, as well as the parent organizations, have a responsibility to ensure that subway stations are properly maintained for safety and that you reach your destination safely. Negligent maintenance or operation of a train or subway can be the source of significant injury, pain, and even the wrongful death of a passenger using these systems. Similarly, a negligent operator can cause significant accidents, injuring pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists who are in the vicinity of an out of control train or derailment.
