Whether you slipped and fell on a broken stair or loose tile, injured yourself due to construction by the tracks or hurt yourself on a broken escalator, it is important to get medical attention as soon as possible. If you are able to, gather as much evidence as possible at the scene—take pictures, get witness information, report your injuries and fill out an incident report.
It’s important not to wait if you think you have a case against Penn Station
If you think you have a case against Amtrak—which owns Penn Station—contact a lawyer as soon as possible. There are special considerations and a significantly shorter statute of limitations when suing Amtrak because it is a government entity.
Sometimes there are other parties, in addition to Amtrak, that may also be held responsible. This may include a maintenance company, a contractor or private business that is operating in the station. An experienced lawyer will thoroughly examine your case to determine your rights, including who you can sue, and make sure all evidence is properly gathered and parties are notified in a timely manner to help give you the best chance possible of winning your case.
