Mass Transit AccidentsMass transit accidents can be especially devastating, resulting in serious injury or even death. These public transportation accidents may include the following:
- Train Accidents
- Subway Accidents
- Bus Accidents
- Boat Accidents
- Taxi Cab Accidents
- Slip and Fall within a mass transit facility
- Trip and Fall within a mass transit facility
Generally, public transportation provides a safe and efficient means of travel. It is an unfortunate fact of life, however, that accidents can and do occur.
When an accident is caused due to the negligence or carelessness of the mass transit operator or one of its agents, the operator may be found liable for the injuries and damages caused.
In order to assert an injury claims against public mass transit authority, New York law requires that a Notice of Claim be served against the particular entity involved. Depending upon the public transit authority concerned, the time to file a Notice of Claim may vary. Generally, a notice of claim must be filed within 90 days of the accident.
In addition, the time within which to start a lawsuit against a public entity can also vary. In some cases, the statute of limitations can be as short as one year from the date of the accident.
Some of the public entities that require a Notice of Claim include:
- The City of New York
- New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA)
- Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA)
- Long Island Rail Road (LIRR)
- Metro-North Railroad
- Manhattan and Bronx Surface Transit Operating Authority (MaBSTOA)
- Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
- Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority (TBTA)
