Mass/Public Transport Accident Claims

Fighting For Injury Victims In New York City Mass Transit Accidents

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (MTA) New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) operates the largest mass transit system in the United States. NYCTA’s subways, trains and buses provide more than 200 million rides every month. Mass transit operators have a duty to safely deliver passengers to their destinations. When accidents happen and injuries occur, injured passengers have the right to be compensated for any losses they suffer as a result.

There are specific steps that need to be taken in order to pursue legal action against the MTA, and strict time limits to file a public transport accident claim are in place. If you or a loved one was injured while riding on New York City mass/public transit, it is essential that you seek the advice of a reliable attorney who knows the law and has the ability to protect your interests.
