Public Transportation Injury Claims

If you’ve been injured on city property or using public transportation owned and operated by New York, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Watch this video by New York injury attorney Mark Shaevitz to learn about public transit injury claims in New York.

If you are in a subway station and you fall, the City of New York is responsible for that also. If you are on the train and the train is involved or a subway car is involved in an accident, they would also be responsible for the operation of the train or subway car.

If you are injured on city property, then its just like being injured on a land owners property. The City of New York just happens to be one of the biggest land owners in the entire State.

The MTA claim process is complicated and places a high burden on injured passengers to act quickly after their injury. Experienced injury attorneys understand the entity that must be contacted and the time limits for filing an injury claim.
