Subway and Bus Accidents

Injured In A Subway Or Bus Accident?

The public transportation system is an integral part of life in New York City. Millions of people working, living or vacationing rely on the subways and buses to get from place to place. The New York City Transit Authority operates this massive network and has a duty to keep every passenger reasonably safe from harm. You can hold the Transit Authority liable when it fails in this duty.

Lawsuits filed against the Transit Authority are not typical personal injury cases. Since 1997, I have successfully litigated many municipal tort cases against the Transit Authority as both a defense and plaintiff's attorney. This dual experience in such a particular area of the law is something very few of the many lawyers in the City have.

The O'Connor Law Firm is located next to the Wall Street Station in Manhattan. My practice extends throughout all five boroughs, including Staten Island. Contact me at 212-566-4868 for your free consultation.

  • Operator or driver negligence
  • Maintenance issues
  • Debris on platforms
  • Slippery or wet flooring
  • Crimes that occur due to negligent security
  • Tripping on a broken staircase
  • Escalator accidents
