How Public Transportation in NYC Operates
Every day, hundreds of thousands of commuters in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut rely on commuter trains and other forms of rapid transit to get to work. These trains are the heartbeat of the city. Without them, the residents of the city and the surrounding areas would not be able to move from location to location for their daily responsibilities.
While most of these trips are uneventful, passengers will occasionally suffer severe injuries while riding on the train. These accidents can have any number of causes. For example, the sliding doors can fail to work properly. Passengers may slip and fall on the train platform or while on the moving train. In rare, but highly publicized cases, trains can derail or collide with other trains. In any of these situations, our experienced New York City train accident attorneys can be instrumental in helping you recover financial compensation for the expenses that arise out of your injury.
We are able to help people who have been injured on any commuter train line in the tri-state area, including:
- Long Island Rail Road
- Metro-North Railroad
- Staten Island Railway
- New Jersey Transit Rail
Each of these entities maintains a duty to passengers. When these entities, such as the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA), the Port Authority or the New Jersey Transit, fail to protect passengers from harm, we fight to hold them accountable.
Our team undertakes a complete investigation of your accident and compiles all evidence of your medical expenses, lost income, and other damages. Our tenacious efforts frequently result in positive outcomes for our clients. Take a look at our results.
When Should I Contact An Attorney?
After an accident, the earlier you speak to a lawyer, the more your lawyer will be able to do regarding your case. In cases involving the MTA, it is necessary to provide a Notice of Claim no less than 90 days after the accident. We know this and are able to follow the timeline and other regulations of the MTA to ensure that your case moves forward in a timely manner.

Causes of Other Accidents Involving Buses
School buses are not the only heavy-duty passenger vehicles on the road. Passenger buses, including charter buses, long-haul bus fleets, tour buses and buses transporting entertainers are also on the road.
In addition to the situations described, these vehicles can end up in accidents due to overworked or over-tired drivers who have skimped on sleep in an effort to stay on schedule. There is also a greater likelihood that vehicles such as these, which spend longer periods of time on highways and freeways, will achieve unsafe rates of speed.
The size and weight of these vehicles are such that drivers must pay the utmost attention to the rules of the road, safe practices during passing, following at an appropriate distance, etc. Once brakes are applied, a bus will travel a distance equivalent to several football fields before it comes to a stop.
Any behavior by a driver that does not take these factors into account, or any failure by a bus owner to ensure that the vehicle can be operated safely, including in emergency situations, can be characterized as negligence.
