Have you been injured in a train accident that happened in New York? Traveling by train is more common in New York than in many other states in America. Especially in New York City, trains are a common way to get around. Millions of people use the subway system everyday. Also, many people use LIRR trains and other trains to get to the surrounding areas in New York.
Because of this, there is a chance that people will be injured in train accidents. Just like with any other vehicle, accidents can and do happen. When you are injured in a train, you might not know where to turn to for legal help. If you were a passenger or in another vehicle when the accident happened, you could receive financial compensation for your injuries by filing a personal injury claim.
In order to receive compensation, you will need to prove that the accident was caused by negligent or reckless actions on the part of another person. You will also need to prove that the other person or entity had a duty of care that they breached.
Train accidents can get complicated because they often involve companies such as the MTA. A personal injury lawyer can help you with your claim.
