LIRR Train & NYC Subway Accidents

LIRR & NYC Subway Accident Lawyers Serving Long Island & NYC Injury Victims

Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) Train and Train Stations, NYC Subway Trains and Subway Accident Lawyers

Birzon, Strang, and Associates represents Train accident victims who sustained serious personal injuries in Train Accidents, including those Trains regulated by the Long Island Railroad (LIRR), Mass Transit Association (MTA), including NYC Subways, Metro-North, and the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). Train accidents often cause catastrophic injuries to their passengers when the conductor improperly operates the Train. Due to the Train’s large size, whenever an accident happens a lot of damage results, even when the train is not speeding. We also represent pedestrians who get seriously injured at the train station, while on subway or train platforms

As a result of the Train accident, passengers sometimes sustain life-altering injuries, such as severe lacerations, broken bones, head neck and spine injuries including brain damage, amputations, and burns. Unfortunately, all too often, some railroad and subway trains are traveling at an excessive rate of speed, when a driver gets distracted or falls asleep, or a mechanical error occurs, and their Train, filled with passengers, gets derailed or crashes into another train, vehicle or object. These types of Train accidents can, and often do prove fatal to some passengers who are not utilizing seatbelts, but rather standing, as all seats are occupied.

In many Train accident cases, if the Train conductor and Train company, such as Amtrak and others, followed the rules and regulations regarding the operation and maintenance of their Trains, such as those set forth by the MTA and other governmental entities, the Train accident and  the severe injuries or wrongful death may have been avoided if not for the Train conductor, Train company, other Train operating entities such as the MTA, Train and equipment manufacturers, or Train maintenance negligence. To determine who was negligent in your Train or train platform accident, individuals who have suffered a severe injury, or a loved one who has lost a family member in a Train accident may be entitled to compensation, it is extremely important to call the law firm of Birzon, Strang, and Associates. Our experienced and dedicated Train accident lawyers are committed to holding accountable any party who was responsible for our client’s injuries or wrongful death, due to the negligence of a Train driver or company, including governmental entities such as the MTA.

Our law firm works diligently to ease the financial burdens that Train and subway accident victims often face by working tirelessly to get you compensation for any medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering that are available. We will help you file all of your accident claims, and zealously pursue whoever is responsible for the damages that you sustained in your Train accident. We will also diligently pursue compensation for victims’ surviving families by bringing a wrongful death when a Train accident ends in fatalities.
