Can I Sue a Train Operator for My Injuries?

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.

I would recommend them to any of my friends without hesitation. This firm gives attorneys a "good name". Clients matter here.

I met Diana Carnemolla and Howard S. Hershenhorn during the darkest time of our lives, when my husband was in a coma with very little chances to survive, due to a car accident. The compassion and professionalism that they showed myself and my family during such a difficult time combined with an incredible willingness to get the best results for us have shown us that we had made the absolute best choice. They not only fought extremely hard for what proved to be a very difficult case, but they also emotionally helped us through this incredible ordeal and have been a caring advocate for our family and our case. They got us the best results we could have expected given the circumstances and didn't give up when things got more challenging. We would absolutely recommend their Law Firm to handle the toughest of cases while providing such a great deal of personal support. Diana proved to be personally invested in our case ultimately seeking the best outcome for our family. We cannot thank them enough for what they have done for us. V.P.
