How Do I Sue The MTA After A Mass Transit Accident?

Millions of New Yorkers use mass transit every day and most arrive safely at their destination.

Bus, Subway And Train Accident Cases Can Be Complex

Mr. Guccione has the experience to represent you in mass transit accidents involving:

  • Buses — A bus can cause injuries to passengers, pedestrians, bicyclists and occupants of other vehicles. Bus passengers can be injured while entering or exiting the bus. They can also be hit by the bus near the bus stop. If the bus is involved in a vehicle accident, passengers may suffer injuries in a number of ways, including being knocked down by the force of the collision.
  • Subways — When subway trains collide, passengers can be severely or fatally injured. Collisions are not the only danger passengers face, however. Subway passengers can be injured if they are caught in the subway doors, if they are caused to fall on the train or if they are caused to fall on the platform.
  • Trains — A collision or derailment can cause catastrophic injuries and wrongful death. Similar to subways, train passengers can also suffer injuries simply waiting for the train. Platforms often present slip-and-fall hazards, especially if they are outside and exposed to rain, ice and snow.

Whether you suffered broken bones, an amputation, neck and back injuries, a brain injury or a spinal cord injury, you can seek compensation for your losses. If you lost a family member in a mass transit accident, you can seek compensation for the personal loss of a loved one, funeral and burial expenses, and additional damages.
