Long Island Train Derailment Injuries
The New York Metro area has seen several derailments in recent years on the LIRR, subways and MetroNorth trains. Train derailments are devastating events that often cause serious injuries and even death. When the MetroNorth train derailed in December 2013, four people were killed and 59 were injured. If you are injured during a train derailment, consult with a Long Island railroad accident attorney to discuss filing a claim.
Legal Options Following a Derailment
These traumatic events not only cause physical harm but often leave survivors with emotional and psychological issues that may require extensive therapy and care.
If you or a loved one is injured in any way in a train accident, you have the right to pursue legal action to help you deal with the mounting bills that are often associated with an accident and focus on recovery.
