Metro North Train Derailment

December 1, 2013

Our hearts go out to the families and loved ones of those who died and were injured in the Train Derailment in New York on December 1, 2013. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (“MTA”) has one of the busiest public transit systems in the world. Because of the number of passengers who rely on trains as their preferred mode of transportation on a daily basis, the MTA has a duty to ensure that its trains are safe. This is the third train accident involving MTA trains just this year. Preliminary reports suggest that this recent accident could have been prevented as it was due to excessive speed. Due to the frequency of these accidents, passengers and their loved ones need to be aware of their rights and how they should proceed if they or a loved one are injured. Anyone who many have been injured in this accident should consult an experienced attorney for a professional evaluation of their situation and an appraisal of their rights.
