Three injured victims of the Hoboken train crash intend to sue NJ Transit, according to reports. They sent notices to NJ Transit on Monday, the first step in the process to recover monetary damages.
Anthony Prieto, 27, of Lyndhurst, N.J. was standing in the vestibule of the second car and thrown from the impact. Prieto suffered a broken nose, vision loss, and an injured ankle, according to his lawyer.
Another injured passenger, Jennifer Van Dam, 45, of Hackensack, N.J. was standing in the first car of the train. She suffered back, chest, knee and ankle injuries, her lawyer said.
Denny Panakal, 45, of Emerson, N.J. was thrust into the seat in front of him and lost consciousness, according to reports.
The attorneys at Morgan Levine Dolan have represented many people injured in mass transit accidents. During the early stages of the investigation, it is imperative to get private attorneys involved in the process. Too many times, the mass transit carrier performs the investigation and many pieces of evidence are either tampered with or ignored.
