• Anyone who had ridden the subway in New York can tell you that it’s the quickest way of getting around New York, but there are a multitude of things that can make your subway experience less than fun. Accidents that involve subways, buses, trains and other forms of mass transit operated by the MTA can be very complex so getting the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney is imperative. When mass transit accidents happen, injured parties and families of people who were killed face a variety of complicated legal issues.

    Some of the common causes of MTA (Manhattan Transit Authority) accidents are:

    • Operator error: Distracted, fatigued or inexperienced drivers or operators can cause bus, train and subway accidents
    • Excessive speed: Subways, buses and trains that are traveling too fast can crash into other vehicles and pedestrians
    • Mechanical defects and defective parts
    • Poor maintenance
