What Should I Do if I’m Injured in an NYC Bus or Train Station Accident?

Many New Yorkers wait at bus or train stations nearly every single day as part of their commute either to work or school. Generally, these places are safe, though unfortunately, at times, they can be quite dangerous. If you have been injured in a bus or train station accident in NYC, you must continue reading and reach out to an experienced NYC personal injury lawyer from our legal team. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are some of the most frequent causes of bus or train station accidents?

These accidents/injuries almost always occur at the hands of a negligent municipality. For instance, and this is especially true in the wintertime, municipalities have a duty to clear away all snow/weather-related hazards within a certain period of time. If they don’t and you are injured, there is a very good chance you may be entitled to compensation. Additionally, these accidents can be caused by a lack of surveillance that enables people to commit crimes, poor lighting in the station, broken stairwells, escalators or elevators, and more.

How do I recover compensation after a bus or train station accident?

To win any personal injury lawsuit, you will need to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. If you have been injured in a bus or train station accident, some of the most valuable forms of proof that our firm will work to obtain can include security camera footage of the accident as it happened, pictures of the safety hazard that caused your accident, medical documentation detailing the severity of your injuries, police reports of the accident, witness statements corroborating your claim, and more. Our firm has been helping individuals recover the compensation they need for a speedy recovery for years. Why not put that experience to work for you?

How long will I have to take legal action against a bus/train station in NYC?

In NYC, the statute of limitations is, generally, two years, which means individuals are granted two years from the date of their accident to file a personal injury claim against a negligent party. However, since you will be suing a municipality, you will instead have to file a Notice of Claim within 90 days of the accident occurring, which lets the municipality know that you are filing a lawsuit against them. If you fail to do so, you will most likely be denied your right to financial compensation, no matter how badly you truly need it. Do not let this happen. Simply reach out to our firm as soon as you can, and we will take it from there.
