Practical Advice About Bus, Train And Subway Accidents
You may be one of the millions of New Yorkers who daily rely on public transportation. Unfortunately, you may also be one of the many New Yorkers who has suffered an injury on subway trains, in subway stations, on commuter trains and on buses operated by municipalities and public authorities such as the NYCTA, MTA, MABSTOA, LIRR and AMTRAK.
If this describes you, we can help. The experienced personal injury lawyers at Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., based in Manhattan, have extensive experience with injury cases.
Helping Victims Of Mass Transit Accidents Since 1965
Since 1965, we have helped clients who have been seriously injured in mass transit accidents.
Personal injury accident cases involving public transportation can be complicated, primarily because the responsible party is a city, county or state government. Each of these governmental jurisdictions has its own set of rules and laws.
It takes an experienced attorney not only to understand those laws and rules but, most important, to understand how they apply in your particular case, so that you can receive the maximum compensation allowed by law.
Why Personal Injury Cases Against The Government Are So Different
Through our experience, we know that these cases have much shorter deadlines than most motor vehicle accident cases or other transportation cases. In many situations, a notice of claim must be filed within 90 days of any accident, or you will lose your right to file a lawsuit. Any failure to meet the procedural requirements of a municipal liability claim can bar you forever from bringing a claim.
Successfully Achieving Compensation For Our Clients
Our attorneys have successfully achieved compensation for people who were injured in subway, train and bus accidents. Many of these injuries were caused by collisions, sudden stops, closing doors and unsafe conditions on subway platforms and stairs.
