New Yorkers rely upon public transportation every day. If you have been hurt while using public transportation, however, you may feel that your options are limited as the process for recovering compensation is very different than a typical car accident. Any passenger who has been injured while using public transportation is entitled to compensation for his or her injuries.
All forms of public transportation are considered common carriers as they transport any member of the public who pays for a ride. Common carriers are required by law to provide the utmost care and attention in transporting passengers safely. Many transportation accidents, however, could have been prevented by more attentive and safe operation of the vehicle. If you have been injured in a public transportation accident, we can help.
