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.

How An Attorney Can Help

Our lawyers have helped many train riders and employees seek compensation for their injuries due to derailments and other train accidents. In fact, our firm has gained the support of Local 589, a division of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union due to our strong record of helping injured railroad workers receive compensation for their injuries.

We work with a team of investigators and medical experts to gather detailed evidence about the accident to find out how it was caused and who is to blame, document injuries, find and interview witnesses and present all the necessary arguments to get the best outcome possible.

We will also document all your costs to help you recover money for:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages and future earnings
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Therapy
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Funeral and burial costs

Goldstein and Bashner When it comes to the capacity to generate profound upheaval and anguish in the lives of those involved, almost nothing rivals a serious personal injury event stemming from the negligence of others. The physical suffering, financial pressures and family strain that so often result from such circumstances can seem insurmountable unless justice and accountability can be obtained from those responsible.
