How do I know if the MTA is liable for the subway accident?
The MTA is the parent company of the New York Transit Authority, who controls the New York City Subway. It is the responsibility of these companies to make sure their operators and staff are adequately trained and capable of getting passengers to and from their destinations safely. They are also responsible for making sure facilities and subway cars are maintained and functioning correctly. When an accident involves faulty car doors, car collisions, slips or falls in a subway car, falling onto the tracks, sudden car stops, or a number of other circumstances associated with car maintenance or staff training, you can most likely believe that the MTA is liable. The attorneys of the Hach & Rose, LLP are familiar with subway accident cases and will be able to determine who should correctly be held liable in your case.
