Mass Transit Accidents Occur on a Regular Basis and Riders Need to Be Aware of This
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/29/2014 -- In New York City, approximately 55 percent of residents make use of public transportation, according to the United States Census Bureau, including those who choose to make use of subway and/or commuter trains. Mass transit accidents occur on a regular basis in New York, with some of these accidents leading to major injuries. "When one is injured in a railway accident, they need the services of an experienced subway and commuter train accident attorney to ensure fair compensation is received," Rob Greenstein of Greenstein and Milbauer Accident Attorneys declares.
Many associate railway accidents with collisions involving multiple trains or a train and a fixed object. Railway accidents encompass numerous other incidents though, including trip-and-fall and slip-and-fall accidents. Injuries resulting from a sudden stop, a derailment or malfunctioning subway doors fall into this category. "Any injury sustained while riding a subway or commuter train is classified as a railway accident and therefore demands the services of an attorney experienced in this area," Greenstein explains. "The same is true of those who have been assaulted while riding this type of mass transit."
Every two hours, a train accident takes place in the United States, with some accidents resulting in human injuries. Train accidents typically involve a number of parties who may be held responsible for these injuries, and many laws and legal standards may come into play during the case. "Whether the accident is the result of equipment failure or human error doesn't really matter when one is injured as the person needs to focus on his or her recovery, rather than who or what is to blame. The attorneys at Greenstein and Milbauer understand this and take on the legal case so the injured party can focus on his or her health, which should always be the top priority," Greenstein states.
