New York City Subway Accident Lawyer
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.

Frequently Asked Questions About NYC Motor Vehicle Accident Claims
It depends on the type of accident involved. Potentially responsible parties may include:
– Your own insurance company,
– The at-fault driver,
– A company that owned the other vehicle,
– The public transit authorities,
– A company that manufactured or designed a defective vehicle part,
– A company responsible for maintaining the vehicle that caused the accident,
– A property owner that maintained their property negligently,
– A government entity for negligently maintaining the roads.
Many people in NYC are injured in bike accidents, taxi accidents, bus accidents and other types of road accidents where they weren’t even driving a motor vehicle. You might not even have car insurance. In some cases, such as subway or bus accidents, the public transportation authority may even be responsible for your accident. Timelines might be much shorter for filing a claim than if you were injured in a simple car accident. Commercial insurance policies with higher coverage limits might be involved—which usually means the insurance company will fight even harder to avoid responsibility. Our lawyers can help you understand the specific laws that apply based on the type of motor vehicle accident involved.
