Transit Authority Accidents

Transit Authority Accident Attorneys in New York

Injury Claims Against The New York City Transit Authority

New York Metro Transit Authority (MTA) accidents are among the most common municipal claims in New York City. This agency operates the subway, city buses, the Long Island Rail Road, and the Staten Island Railway. With this much transit, it is no surprise there are frequent accidents under the purview of the MTA. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a Transit Authority vehicle, make sure you work with a firm you can trust to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

At Restivo & Murphy LLP, we focus on fatal accidents and catastrophic injury claims that include traumatic brain injury, paralysis, lost limbs, severe burn injuries, and related accidents caused by municipal entities. With a track record of successful verdicts and settlements, we have built a reputation for maximizing our clients' claims to get them the best compensation awards available under the law. Based in Garden City, our attorneys travel to meet clients throughout the 5 boroughs, as well as Long Island, Nassau County, and Suffolk County.

Catastrophic Injury Claims Stemming from Accidents Involving the Transit Authority

Because subways, buses, and train cars are extremely large and heavy vehicles, the injuries that result from accidents with these vehicles are usually catastrophic or even fatal. It is rare to see a small, insignificant subway accident involving a railroad. We represent clients in claims involving loss of limbs and amputations, broken bones, paralysis, head and neck injuries, and wrongful death claims.

Bringing a claim against a municipality is more complex than claims against private citizens. There are stricter filing deadlines for claims, more red tape, and aggressive full-time defense teams protecting municipalities against claims of this kind. Our lawyers have more than 40 years of combined experience, and we have been successful in many municipal claims. We can help you understand your rights and fight to obtain full and fair compensation for your losses.
