Train Accidents

NYC Transit Accident Claims

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, where millions of people use Amtrak, the New York City Subway, NJ Transit, the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR), PATH Trains, and/or the Metro-North Railroad every week. 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. The law firm of Rich & Rich, P.C. is prepared to bring more than 20 years of experience to help you and your family after a train accident.

Although there is no “typical” train accident, many accidents occur as a result of negligence on behalf of either the train’s conductor or as a result of poor maintenance by the company that operates the train and train tracks, such as:

  • Train or subway car collisions
  • Derailment
  • Improper station maintenance
  • Failure to maintain stairs or platforms
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Poor maintenance of tracks
  • Defective railroad crossings
  • Crowded subway or train tunnels
  • Non-compliance with federal or state safety standards
  • Insufficient upkeep of wheels, brakes and other parts
  • Gaps between the station platform and the train
  • Weather-related conditions

Rich & Rich, P.C. will investigate the facts and circumstances concerning your train accident and determine the best legal strategy to recover the maximum amount of compensation for you or your loved one.
