NYC Bus & Subway Accidents
The Law Offices of Mark A. Eskenazi, LLC represent clients who have been injured on NYC subways and buses. Accidents, sudden stops, closing doors, assaults and bad drop off points have all caused injuries.
Accidents involving NYC Buses and Subways or other public transportation have additional requirements which the injured person must be aware of. You have only 90 (ninety) days* from the time of your accident to file a Notice of Claim with the appropriate city agency when you've been injured by a NYC bus or subway (or at a NYC bus or subway station). In lawsuits against NYC transportation, a delay in speaking to a lawyer and filing the appropriate paperwork can actually cause you to lose your right to sue.
Injuries suffered as a result of these types of accidents can be severe and life altering and can cause incredible economic hardship. Injuries can range from head or back problems, to scars, nerve damage, broken or dislocated bones, paralysis, loss of limbs and even death. They can also cause loss of employment or long absences from school and job training.
We understand that the immediate goal following an accident is to ensure that you obtain all necessary medical care. We also understand that the next objective is to move your case forward to seek compensation for your medical bills, your pain and suffering and your economic losses. We will discuss your unique situation and when appropriate, take immediate steps in court to move the process of recovery forward to seek money damages on your behalf.
If you live in the New York City, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens or on Long Island, and you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a bus or subway accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation under the law.

*If more than 90 days have passed since your accident and a Notice of Claim was not filed, the law provides a way for a party to ask the court to extend that time beyond the 90 day limitation. If that's you, we will look at the facts of your case, the reason for the delay and discuss the options that are available to you.
