Public Transportation Accidents
Mass transportation is presumed to be safe. Millions of people ride buses, trains, subways, and airplanes every day. When an accident occurs, many people can be injured or killed by one incident.
At Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., we help victims of public transportation accidents. Our lawyers understand the applicable laws that apply in such cases, some of which are highly focused. For example, accidents to railroad workers are covered by FELA (Federal Employers Liability Act). The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulates passenger buses. The Federal Transit Administration covers subways and mass transit. Recently, Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., attorney Luis Haquia tried a case involving a man struck by a New York City subway train after he fell onto the tracks. During the complex trial, Mr. Haqua was able to prove to the jury that the subway motorman was negligent in failing to observe this helpless man and failing to timely activate the train’s emergency brake. The jury returned a multimillion dollar verdict in favor of the Plaintiff.
To stay current with changing personal injury law, we regularly attend continuing legal education seminars and workshops
Most transportation law is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Our lawyers have the knowledge of this body of law and of the various regulatory agencies to develop strong cases for clients who have been injured or for the families of those killed in a bus or train accident.
