Holding The MTA And New Jersey Transit Accountable

Both the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and New Jersey Transit may be held accountable for injuries that occur on subways and commuter trains as a result of acts of negligence, disrepair or, in some cases, physical assault. These agencies perform their own investigations when accidents occur.

At the Law Office of Schachter, P.C., we consult with our own accident investigators, safety consultant engineers and train experts to determine the cause of the mishap. As your attorney, David B. Schachter interviews eyewitnesses, train conductors, token booth operators and others to expose negligence on the part of the MTA or New Jersey Transit.

Causes Of Subway Accident Injuries

The Law Office of Schachter, P.C., represents clients injured in subway accidents as a result of:

  • Sudden stops
  • Subway conductor errors
  • Subway doors closing on legs, arms or personal belongings
  • Slippery floors
  • Derailments
  • Disrepair on subway platforms
  • Crumbling subway stairs

Investigating Subway Accidents

It's important to begin the investigative process as soon as possible after an accident occurs since a notice of claim must be filed within 90 days. While investigators for the transit authorities look for evidence that exonerates their agencies, we protect your rights and interests, seeking proof of their liability.
