Subway and train operators, and their parent companies have a professional obligation to ensure that passengers are transported safely to their destination. If an operator negligently fails to deliver passengers unharmed, injures pedestrians, or injures passenger vehicle occupants, the employee and his or her company may be found negligent. To successfully litigate these types of cases, an attorney must have full command of the transportation law as found in Title 49 of the United States Code and be familiar with the various regulatory agencies for these types of accidents. For example, accidents to railroad workers are covered by FELA (Federal Employers Liability Act) and The Federal Transit Administration covers subways and mass transit.How Do Attorneys Investigate Train Accidents in New York?
In order to ensure important eyewitnesses are located, conductors interviewed, and physical evidence preserved, our train accident attorneys initiate an independent investigation process as soon as possible when seeking damages for a subway or train accident. The MTA, NJT and other agencies employ internal investigators to collect evidence and conduct an investigation into the cause of subway and train accidents.What Type of Experts Are Hired in a Train Accident Lawsuit?
In addition to train accident expert witnesses, we also retain if necessary expert accountants and financial analysts because many subway and train accident cases have their own set of associated losses including lost wages, the cost of care and many other monetary costs. In order to accurately assess what these costs will be for the remainder of a victim’s life, we use financial professionals to derive fair resolutions for injury victims.
