From platforms that are in a state of disrepair to poorly maintained trains, there are numerous hazards involved with taking the subway. Each year, people are injured in a variety of ways when attempting to travel via the subway system, and some accidents are more common than others:
- Clothing gets trapped in the door, causing the injured party to be pulled by the train
- Doors close on them
- Electrical malfunctions
- Robberies and assaults as a result of inadequate security
- Slip and fall injuries as a result of leaking pipes, poorly maintained stairwells, or accumulating snow and ice
If you have been injured on a train or at a train station, the legal experts at Dankser & Aspromonte can help. With years of personal injury experience, we are well-versed in the legalities regarding subway system injuries.
