The largest public transportation company in the United States is the Metropolitan Transportation Authority or MTA. Mainly operating throughout New York, it also carries passengers to Connecticut. The MTA encompasses the subway, buses, bridges, tunnels and trains throughout this area. Every day, millions of commuters rely on the MTA to take them safely to and from work. However, in recent years, there have been an alarming number of accidents, particularly train accidents.
If you or a loved one was injured in a train accident involving the MTA, it is very important that your attorney should have handled such cases. At Morgan Levine Dolan, P.C., we have represented injured victims against train companies and can skillfully represent you and your family in an MTA accident case. We have the knowledge and experience to identify what is needed for a strong case and solid settlement against the MTA as well as negotiating skills and the ability to aggressively litigate, if necessary.
MTA Commuter Train Crash
The most recent MTA train accident involved a derailment due to the “nodding off” of the train operator. Such negligent actions by the MTA and the train operator likely caused the death of four people and injured 67 others. We have the experience to successfully handle cases against the MTA and other potentially negligent parties.
Train accidents are often very serious, especially if the train derailed at high speeds. Such injuries can include:
- Broken bones/fractures
- Back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain or head trauma
