Due to easy access and speed of travel, subway and commuter train travel has become an increasingly popular mode of public transportation, especially in the New York metropolitan area. Accidents that involve trains often result in serious personal injuries or death. Serious injuries may also occur at train stations, railroad crossings and on station platforms.
Train accidents may occur as a result of a collision between trains, derailments, poorly maintained tracks, crowded train tunnels, poorly maintained wheels, brakes and other parts, non-compliance with safety standards and many other factors. Accidents at train stations, railroad crossings and on station platforms may occur as a result of improperly maintained stations, stairs or platforms, poor lighting, weather related conditions, defective railroad crossings and gaps between the train and station platforms.
