Subway Injuries Can Include More Than Train Accidents
Subway accidents can involve more than getting hit by a train. People may be electrocuted after stumbling onto the tracks, break bones falling down slippery or uneven stairs, and even suffer traumatic brain injuries when they fall off the platform onto the tracks. Our team will handle all types of subway accident cases.

Subway Accidents Are Often Complicated
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is responsible for New York’s subways. This also means it is liable for injuries resulting from its failure to provide safe services. Holding MTA liable is difficult for the average person with no experience handling legal matters.
However, MTA is not the only possible at-fault party in subway accidents. If, for example, there is a design defect in a newly-installed staircase, and someone is injured in a fall, the design firm could be liable.
You can sue if you were involved in a subway accident. However, these cases are often quite complicated. Fortunately, you do not need to handle your case alone. Discuss your case with a personal injury lawyer in New York at Friedman & Simon, L.L.P.
The initial consultation is free and you pay nothing unless and until we recover compensation for you.
