TRAIN DERAILMENT

For the second time within one year, the New York Tri-State area has seen a train derailment due to human error, poor maintenance and otherwise negligent behavior cause serious injuries to patrons who are simply trying to get to work.

Whether the train conductor fell asleep at the controls, the controls malfunctioned or the train hardware was defective, working men and women are put at risk for serious injury when a train derails and goes off its’ tracks.

Back in September of 2016, an out of control train crashed into the platform killing one young mother and injuries dozens more. In May of 2013, a Metro-North Passenger train derailed in Fairfield Connecticut and injured over 65 of the 250 people on board.

Today, a Long Island Rail Road train derailed and crashed into the platform injuring over 100 people. Since these trains are operated by government, state and quasi state agencies, the time to file a Notice of Claim against these agencies is limited and quick. If you were injured in a train derailment or any other train accident, contact us immediately to preserve your rights. Waiting too long to contact an attorney can jeopardize and/or bar your claims.
