Get the Compensation that You Deserve
Millions of people in New York City rely on public transportation every day, and with so many passengers, stations, and vehicles constantly in motion, it is no surprise that accidents occur. You deserve to feel safe when traveling throughout the city, but if you should fall victim to a subway, train, or railroad crossing accident, the right attorney can make all the difference in receiving adequate compensation for your injuries.
Train accidents can obviously be very serious affairs if the train is derailed or collides with another train. The entire infrastructure is set up to make sure that accidents like this don’t happen, but unfortunately, due to negligence or a lack of maintenance, accidents can happen. Of particular problem is the fact that trains can be seen as a target. This includes people deliberately putting objects on the tracks which can cause havoc. By placing rocks or other objects on the track, it increases the likelihood that the train will derail or have to break abruptly. This can cause serious injuries to those on board with head, neck, back injuries as well as fractures, burns and cuts. Each rail company has a duty to its customers to keep them safe and make sure that rail is a safe way to travel.
If you have been injured in such an accident you should be able to make a personal injury claim. An accident can be caused by negligence on behalf of the maintenance staff, management, and the driver or a third party. Under each of these circumstances, you should call your personal injury lawyer to receive a free assessment. When train injuries can be so serious and result in trauma, it is senseless to not claim what is lawfully yours to claim for. Treatment for such injuries can be ongoing and require years to put right, if at all. Contact Paul Dansker and knowhow by making a personal injury claim you can make your life a little bit easier and access the sort of medical care that can really help you rebuild your life.
