Subway Accidents

There are quite a number of ways people could get hurt when using the subway. Accidents and injuries on the subway occur in the stations, platforms, and trains. The following is a list of some of the most common subway hazards:

  • Derailments or crashes on the tracks involving one or more trains.

  • People becoming hurt as a result of doors closing too quickly or people failing to get out of the path.

  • People are being carried beneath the trail or down the tracks with the train.

  • Slippery surfaces on platforms and in stations are frequently caused by leaking train fluids.

  • Snow and ice can cause a slip and fall, as well as derailments.

  • Trips and falls are common in the stations and platforms.


One of the first things an attorney will do is find out who owns the train or station where the accident happened. The majority of public transportation systems are owned by the government, while others are privately held. This information will assist us in determining who is responsible for your injury. There are other laws that differ depending on whether the property is owned by the government or by private individuals. It is critical that you respond soon since the timeliness of your case can be critical.

A subway accident can result in injury in a variety of ways. Among them include, but are not limited to:

  • Negligence by the operator
  • Electrocutions
  • Accidents involving subway cars
  • Failures in the electrical system
  • Stairs or platforms that have been damaged
  • Failure to keep the car, platform, or station in good working order

We will assist you in pursuing the best possible outcome, regardless of how you were hurt. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, missed wages, and pain and suffering.
