Handling Of Mass Transit Accidents In New York City
Mass transit accidents come in all shapes and sizes. We represent clients that have suffered a wide range of injuries in the following types of situations:
- Subway and train accidents
- Bus accidents
- Taxi accidents
- Ferry accidents
Many of these cases involve the New York City Transit Authority. We understand how to work with this entity to gather information regarding your bus accident or other type of mass transit—caused injury. Because the NYCTA is a quasi-governmental entity, there are special regulations that apply to how lawsuits must be filed, and failure to do so may bar your claim. With our years of experience, we understand the procedures and can ensure your damage claim is filed timely and properly.
