Brooklyn Subway Accident Lawyer
Any accident that leaves you injured because of someone else’s negligence deserves compensation, and a subway accident is no different. Find out if you have a case by consulting with a Brooklyn subway accident lawyer.
A subway accident injury can leave you with many questions and concerns. At this point, you almost certainly need to know how to get your medical bills paid for, and there are going to be a number of other expenses and losses incurred by the accident as well.
You deserve a settlement to cover all of these damages, but actually getting the at-fault party or insurance to fairly compensate you can be quite the challenge. Whether you were hurt in a subway derailment or were injured within the station or on a platform, a Brooklyn subway accident lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP can help you bring your claim to a successful conclusion.
Who Caused Your Subway Injury?
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is responsible for managing and running public transportation within Brooklyn and the rest of New York City. Any subway injuries and related accidents would fall under their responsibility. This makes the process of filing a lawsuit more complicated than if you were hurt in an accident with a personal vehicle.
When suing a government agency, different rules apply. You must hire a Brooklyn subway accident lawyer and file a complaint within ninety days of the accident to seek financial damages. Missing this window could prevent you from receiving any financial compensation at all.
In some cases, another passenger or a bystander could be responsible for what happened, which would instead allow you three years in which to file a personal injury claim.
Types of Subway Accidents
Speak with a Brooklyn subway accident lawyer from our office to determine if your injuries were the fault of the MTA, another passenger, a bystander, or someone else. We can help you identify the cause of the accident and name all of the at-fault parties in your demand for restitution.
Regardless of the specifics of your subway injury, our firm will know how to investigate and identify the cause:
- Train derailment
- Falls or accidents caused by a station in disrepair
- Platform accidents
- Turnstile injuries
- Assaults that occur due to a lack of security
Maximize Your Personal Injury Claim
You could be entitled to far more than just having your medical bills paid for. We will work to get you compensated for all past, current, and future accident-related medical bills and will also seek compensation for any other ways that your injuries have impacted you.
Any expense you have suffered, such as the need to hire a caregiver or retrofit your home, should be compensated. Additionally, you can seek compensation for current and future lost earnings.
Finally, your Brooklyn subway accident lawyer will work closely with you to identify any non-economic damages you have experienced, including pain and suffering, decreased enjoyment of life, and damage done to your personal relationships.
