New York Train Passenger Injury Attorney · New Jersey Railroad Accident Attorney
Slip-and-fall accidents account for many of the injuries suffered by train passengers. Common injuries on trains or in stations include brain injuries, back and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, knee injuries, hip injuries and shoulder injuries.
If you are injured on a train, the crew must report and document the injury. When possible, photograph the condition that caused the accident. Similarly, if you slip and fall in a railroad station parking lot or on a station platform, be sure to report your injury to the local police or the MTA police. You should also obtain immediate medical treatment and document your injury and physical complaints.
If you want to sue most railroads in the Metropolitan New York area, you must serve a formal Notice of Claim on the railroad or MTA within a short period or you will not be permitted to bring a lawsuit. Speak with an attorney today so you do not miss your opportunity to sue for damages.
