If you or a loved one was injured on the Long Island Rail Road, our experienced lawyers can help answer your questions and discuss the best course of action—with no charge to you. But before you call us, here are some other steps to take:

  1. Seek medical attention if you are hurt, even if you do not think your injuries are severe. Often symptoms can take a few hours or even days to appear. It is important to get checked out and let your doctors know the injuries are the result of an accident.
  2. Notify the conductor, any train worker you see at the scene and the police. You can file a report at a station, such as Penn Station or Jamaica.
  3. Preserve evidence. Take pictures with your cell phone, get names and numbers of any witnesses and file a police report.
