New York Subway Injury Lawyer

MTA subway trains provide a crucial transportation service to millions of New Yorkers every day, from young children traveling to school to middle-aged adults commuting to work to senior citizens visiting with friends and family members.  Regardless of their age, their occupation, or which of New York City’s many neighborhoods they call home, most New Yorkers rely on the subway to get them from Point A to Point B affordably and reliably.  Unfortunately, serious or even fatal injuries can occur due to safety hazards created by negligent MTA employees or dangerous conditions at subway stations, such as slippery platforms or insufficient lighting in stairwells.

If you or a loved one was injured while riding MTA in New York City, or if you suffered an injury while you were waiting for a train at a subway stop, you may be able to get compensated for your medical bills, lost earnings, and other expenses.  The New York City MTA injury lawyers of Sullivan & Galleshaw have more than 30 years of experience representing injured subway riders and helping New Yorkers get fairly compensated for MTA accidents.  We can provide aggressive legal representation in pursuit of maximum compensation for your MTA injury claim.  To discuss your claim in a free legal consultation, contact the law offices of Sullivan & Galleshaw at (877) 311-HURT today.

Do I Have an MTA Injury Claim if I Was Injured on the Subway in NYC?

You could have a personal injury claim against the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) if you were injured while riding a subway train, while you were waiting for a train on the platform, or while you were walking through a subway station or concourse.  You are urged to contact Sullivan & Galleshaw for a free consultation if you or a loved one were injured under any of the following circumstances:

  • You were injured while boarding or stepping onto the train, or while stepping off of the train at your stop.
  • You were injured by a defective object or piece of equipment at a subway station or onboard a subway train, such as a defective subway turnstile.
  • You were injured in a slip and fall accident at a subway station caused by a hazard such as a leak on the floor or a broken step in the station.
