New York City has one of the biggest and busiest public transportation systems in the world. The network is so comprehensive and efficient that more than half of New Yorkers find it unnecessary to own a car. The tradeoff is putting your safety in the hands of public employees who operate and maintain the trains, subways and buses.
The Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm has advocated successfully for victims of accidents and injuries involving the New York City Transit system (NYCT). We understand the short statute of limitations and other special considerations in bringing claims against the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), the Port Authority or other governmental entities.
We represent people seriously injured in mass transit accidents in Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens or Staten Island. Contact us today for a free lawyer consultation.
Our MTA Accident Lawyers Represent All Mass Transit Injury Victims:
- Train accidents — We handle cases involving collisions with commuter trains or injuries aboard the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR), Metro-North Railroad (MNR), Staten Island Railroad (SIR) or the AirTrain JFK.
- Subway accidents — Our team represents people seriously injured while riding the New York City subway or while waiting, boarding or exiting.
- Bus accidents — We represent those injured while riding a New York City bus or MTA bus, as well as pedestrians or motorists injured in bus collisions.
- Taxicab Accidents – Although taxicabs are not operated by the MTA, New York City’s 13,000 privately owned taxis play an integral part in getting around town.
We also represent train and bus drivers and other transit workers who are injured on the job. Railroad or Port Authority employees, for example, may be able to sue their employers or may have personal injury claims against third parties. Our verdicts and settlements in mass transit litigation include a $5.325 million wrongful death settlement for the family of an AirTrain worker who was killed on the job.
