A

Your mother is lucky to have you asking this question. Often people who are injured on New York City trains are hurt and confused about what they should do.

The first thing that you should help your mom do is to get the immediate medical care that she needs and develop a plan for your physical recovery. Often, this means following up with a primary care physician after an emergency room visit and/or hospital stay. Your mother’s primary care doctor can help your mother develop a treatment plan so that she recovers to the best extent possible.

Of course, while your mother’s physical recovery is likely her (and your) biggest concern; there are also other concerns that need to be addressed. How is your mother going to pay her bills while she is out of work? How is she going to pay for the extra care that she needs in the house? Who is going to compensate her for the physical pain she is feeling and the emotional pain she is suffering? Why should your mother have to bear these burdens for an accident that was not her fault?

She shouldn’t. Instead, she should contact an experienced New York train accident attorney who will work hard to protect your rights and get her the recovery she deserves. A New York City train lawyer will focus on her legal and financial recovery so that she can work on getting better.
