New York Subway and Long Island Train Accident Attorneys
Over 4 million people in New York rely on the subway to get around town every day. The subway system in New York is operated by the New York City Transit Authority. The NYC Transit Authority has a legal obligation to protect its passengers by ensuring all subway trains and stations are properly maintained, and that all operators receive proper safety training. When a subway accident occurs, the NYC Transit Authority will be held liable for any negligent maintenance or operation that results in the injury of a passenger. If you have been injured in a subway accident in New York or a train accident in Long Island, you have the right to take legal action. A skilled New York subway accident lawyer can review your case and help you file a lawsuit against the New York City Transit Authority. Or a Long Island train accident lawyer can review your case and help you file a lawsuit against the Long Island Railroad.
Subway accidents can occur while riding on the subway, or in the subway station. There are numerous circumstances that can potentially lead to a subway accident, including:
- Operator negligence
- Sudden stops

In addition, the NYC Transit Authority will also be held liable for incidents that occur as a result of negligent security in the subway or at the station, such as acts of physical assault, robbery, or rape.
