To help you alleviate the financial burden and secure your future wellbeing, a Queens subway accident lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP will help you understand the legal process to protect your rights and obtain a large settlement for you and your family.
Subway Accidents and Their Many Causes
Subway accidents can happen due to a wide variety of reasons. Whether you slipped on the subway platform, were hurt in a derailment, or were trapped by closing subway doors, subway accidents can cause debilitating and long-term harm. Holding the liable party accountable by filing a legal claim will not only help prevent a future incident, it will also give you the compensation you are entitled to.
Your Queens subway accident lawyer will conduct a full investigation into what happened and pinpoint the cause and who was at fault:
- Subway Station and Platform Accidents – Slippery and wet floors, objects obstructing walking areas
- Subway Car Accidents – Subway car crashes into oncoming subways or barriers, subway car derailments
- Conductor Error – Fatigued driving, operation under the influence of alcohol or drugs, using a cell phone and not paying attention
Fault in Subway Crashes
Those who can be held accountable for causing the accident may include one or more parties. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) operates and maintains New York City’s subway system. If their careless acts caused your accident, you can file a lawsuit against them. For example, if the MTA did not fix a known broken subway car or if they did not properly train the driver, they could be held liable.
Other parties who can be at fault include the following:
- Subway conductor
- Maintenance company
- Subway car manufacturer
- Subway part manufacturer
- Third party contractor
Fighting For Your Right to Compensation
Recovering compensation for your injuries can be difficult when dealing with insurance companies. They typically take advantage of victims like you, offering low settlements and hoping you will sign the documents and move on with your life.
Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be able to seek compensation for the following damages:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost wages and future income
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
To ensure you get the best possible outcome, a Queens subway accident lawyer from our firm will negotiate aggressively with the insurers to achieve a full payout.
