Subway Accidents

NYC Subway Accident Lawyers


If you have been injured in any type of subway accident, whether in a subway car collision or at a platform or station, you probably have a lot of questions. Silbowitz, Garafola, Silbowitz, Schatz & Frederick, L.L.P. can answer these, and we can help you understand what rights you have after an incident of this kind. Our subway accident attorneys have been helping clients across New York City for over 20 years, and we know exactly how to handle these serious, complex claims.

Accountability for a subway accident may lie with the car or platform operator, the NYC Transit Authority, or another party. Negligent maintenance of subway cars, platforms, and stations can lead to serious accidents and collisions. Inadequate security can lead to criminal activity such as mugging or assault. We fight for the rights of our clients to recover fair compensation for their injuries and to seek justice for their lost loved ones.
