Subway and Metro Accidents
Millions of people rely on the subway or metro to get to work each day. In New York City alone, an estimated 5.6 million people ride the subway every day. Public transportation systems are an integral part of daily life for those commuters. When you ride on local subway systems, you have every right to expect a safe and efficient trip. Unfortunately, however, this is not always a reality.
Subway and metro injuries are all too common. These injuries can be caused by anything from train crashes and derailments to insufficiently maintained stations. Conditions like these can result in whiplash, concussions, slip-and-fall injuries, or even death.
In many cases, injuries like these are caused by preventable error. These errors might include reckless train conductors, excessive speed, failure to follow required safety protocol, or poor maintenance.
If someone else’s negligence caused you or a loved one to suffer an injury while using a subway or metro system, you may be entitled to financial compensation. The size of that compensation depends on your injuries, but it also depends on the skill and experience of your attorney. You need an attorney who can help you get the best possible outcome.
