Public Transit Accidents

New York City Bus And Subway Accident Attorneys

New York City couldn't function without buses and subways, ferries and other forms of public transportation. The providers of these forms of transit have a duty to protect the safety of passengers. If they fail to do so and someone is hurt, the injured person has a legal right to be paid for the damages caused by the transit provider.

The attorneys of Getz & Braverman, P.C., represent people injured in all kinds of transit accidents, including those involving:

  • Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) buses
  • School buses
  • Charter buses
  • Airport shuttles
  • Taxis
  • Subways
  • Trains

When you buy a ticket or pay a fare for transportation, the person or transportation company that gets you from point A to point B is called a common carrier. Because they are professionals, common carriers owe their passengers a higher standard of care than do private individuals.
