Subway Accidents

Subway Accidents

Subway trains are among the most dangerous means of public transportation in the city. The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and its operator, the New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) are under a legal obligation to protect riders from injury resulting from subway accidents of all types.

Kahn Gordon Timko & Rodriques P.C., is one of the most recognized names in personal injury litigation in New York City. Our New York subway accident attorneys have the skills and experience to fight the well-financed defense attorneys of large government institutions like the Transit Authority. Because we focus exclusively on resolving personal injury cases at trial, we prepare every case to argue before a judge and jury. Opposing attorneys know that when our name is on the case, they will have to come prepared with a fair settlement offer or be ready to fight aggressively in court. We have a very successful record of helping our clients obtain maximum money damages for injuries and wrongful death claims involving subway accidents in courts throughout the New York metropolitan region.

What to Do After a Subway Accident

Despite dozens of eyewitnesses that may have been present, subway accident cases often come down to he-said-she-said about the facts. We encourage you to write down everything you can remember about the circumstances of your accident or assault, including eyewitness names and contact information. Make a note of the identifying number of the closest stairway or platform (either an S or a P number).
