A New York City subway accident can interfere with your work day, your sightseeing, or your evening plans. It can also cause you significant physical pain and emotional suffering. If you have been hurt in a subway accident, New York City lawyers advise you to:
- Report the Accident to Transit Police: The Transit Police can help you identify exactly where you are and they will document the incident
- Take Pictures of Defects at the Accident Scene: The camera on your cell phone works well for this purpose. Take pictures of any defect or hazard you see that may have contributed to your injuries
- Take Note of Names & Phone Numbers of Witnesses: The good thing, if there is one, about being hurt on a New York City subway is that you are probably not alone. There were likely witnesses to your accident. Request their names and phone numbers so that you can get in touch with them in the future
