NYC Subway Accident Attorneys Who Will Fight to Get You Compensated for Your Injuries in New York

At first glance, a subway is simple — it’s a train that runs through a tunnel in New York City. Most of the time, the train consists of several connecting cars that contain durable seats, as well as poles and straps for people to hold onto when the train is full. But a subway also requires several other systems that riders cannot always see. In some subway systems, the trains themselves are extremely complex. Unfortunately, the features that make subway systems stand out the most are also the factors which contribute significantly to accidents and serious injuries to passengers.

The number of NYC subway stations, the aging infrastructure, and the volume of passengers (more than six million on some days) create conditions that lend themselves to accidents and injuries. When those injuries are the result of another person’s negligence, victims should find out whether they are eligible to seek compensation. Schedule a free initial consultation at the New York City motor vehicle accident law firm of Proner & Proner to discuss your NYC subway accident case and to learn how the firm builds strong cases seeking maximum compensation on behalf of clients.

Causes of Subway Accidents in NYC

If you were injured while riding the subway in New York City, you owe it to yourself to get sound legal advice about your legal options. Attorney Mitchell Proner understands the challenges of filing claims and lawsuits against public agencies such as the MTA and other negligent parties. He represents clients after they were injured because of:

  • Poor maintenance on subway cars.
  • Damaged or crumbling stairs and platforms.
  • Malfunctions to escalators and elevators.
  • Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Slippery floors and platforms.
  • Broken or weak handrails on stairs.
  • Damaged or malfunctioning emergency equipment.
  • Doors closing on passengers.

When Attorney Mitchell Proner can show that such incidents were the result of negligence, the injured person may be able to file a personal injury claim in pursuit of compensation for medical and surgical bills, income loss, therapy and rehab, and pain and suffering. He also files wrongful death claims on behalf of those whose loved one died in a subway accident.
