The New York City Transit Authority operates the seventh largest subway system in the world with a ridership of over 1.75 billion a year and 5.6 million riders a week. Their job is to make sure that all those riders are safely delivered to their destination. Faulty equipment; inadequate lighting; broken platforms or stairs; defective escalators are all potential causes for serious injury for which the Transit Authority would be responsible. Statistics show that last year there were over 50 subway-related deaths and this number continues to rise each year. Regulations relative to speed limits coming into the the station have been suggested but to-date have not been implemented. The media and the public needs to be made aware of the dangerous conditions of our current subway system so that improvements can be made to enhance rider safety.
If you, or a loved one has been seriously injured riding the subway, or while moving in and out of the subway stations, it is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney who knows transportation law and can make sure that the New York Transit Authority is held fully responsible for their riders’ injuries. Mitchel Ashley of The Ashley Law Firm has had over 40 years experience filing these claims for his clients and getting the compensation they deserve.
