Brooklyn Subway Slip And Fall Accident LawyerHave you slipped and fallen in a subway terminal in New York City, the Bronx, or Brooklyn resulting in serious injury?  If so, you may need the services of a Brooklyn personal injury lawyer Jay S. Knispel.

In theory, subways should be clean and free of debris at all times, but truthfully, this is not the case.  Sometimes the debris can linger so long it becomes dangerous, resulting in serious injuries to those unable to safely move through the subway terminal or onto the bus.

Mr. Knispel specializes in helping those seriously injured by the unsafe conditions of the New York City subway systems.

Who is Responsible?

Injuries occurring from slipping in a subway terminal, or on the subway itself, fall under the category of premises liability. For your injuries, this would mean that the owner or people in charge of maintaining the premises, the subway, may be liable for injuries that occur due to unsafe conditions caused by negligence in the maintenance of the property, in this case, the subway terminal or bus.

Injuries that occur on the premises of the subway terminal or bus from slipping or tripping and falling can be linked to one or more of the following for liability:

  • Maintenance Company in charge
  • Metropolitan Transportation Authority
  • Individual causing the hazard
  • Other individuals or entities involved in the safety of the subway system

Of course, it is your responsibility as a subway rider to be cautious and aware of your surroundings.

Never intentionally put yourself in harm’s way, and always look where you are going when in the subway terminal.  Even so, accidents happen, and unfortunately, injuries can occur.

Our attorneys will do a thorough investigation of your accident to determine liability and help you to recover the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.

Compensation can usually be recovered for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, depending on the severity of your injuries.
