Compensation For Public Transit Accidents

We can pursue claims against the New York City Transit Authority/Metropolitan Transportation Authority for accidents involving the New York City Subway, New York City Bus, Staten Island Railway, Metro-North Railroad, Long Island Rail Road and other agencies such as Amtrak. Our attorneys have handled many scenarios:

  • Auto collisions with city buses
  • Pedestrians struck by buses
  • Passengers injured while riding the subway, light rail or bus
  • Injuries at platforms and bus stops

In general, you must submit a notice of claim within 90 days of the accident to sue a governmental entity. It is important to seek legal help right away to preserve your rights. Our experienced attorneys know what records to obtain and how to proceed with the claim to get the best result. Did the driver/operator violate policy? Was the Transit Authority negligent in hiring or training?

If we cannot obtain a reasonable settlement, we are prepared to take the case to trial. We represent clients from all five boroughs and Long Island. Call 347-934-9216 or contact us online to discuss your situation in a free consultation.
