Public Transportation Accident Claims and the Law
The subway system and most of the buses are operated by the New York City Transit Authority. The remaining buses are operated by the Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transit Operating Authority, a sister authority run by the state of New York. Because these are government establishments, strict legal conditions must be met before compensation can be recovered.
These conditions include the filing of a written notice of claim within 90 days of the motor vehicle accident and other time constraints that must be met. For those reasons, prompt action is required whenever there is a possible claim against either of these agencies or the personal injury claim may be lost.
Generally, the law in New York says the Transit Authority or the Surface Transit Operating Authority is legally responsible for any negligence in the operation or maintenance of the train and bus systems. Like a railroad, the Transit Authority is considered to be a common carrier that is required to exercise reasonable care in providing passengers with a safe ride.
Our NYC personal injury attorneys know how to handle these highly complicated claims. We are committed to helping you secure the compensation you are entitled.
