GLK is Investigating NY MTA Metro-North Train Crash that Killed 4

NY Train Wreck Injury AttorneyYesterday, an M.T.A. Metro-North Hudson line train derailed in Bronx, New York. At least 60 people were injured and 4 were killed in the train accident.  The train derailed along a stretch of track known to include one of the sharpest curves in the metro system. That stretch of track in Queens is where the Harlem River and Hudson River meet.

It does not yet know what speed the train was traveling, but train engineers have to greatly reduce speed during that stretch of the track to avoid derailment. According to the New York Times, the train conductor stated that he “dumped the breaks” when he entered the curve to greatly reduce the train’s speed. The cause of the crash is currently under investigation.

The train was traveling from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central on Sunday morning and carrying 100 to 150 people.

This has been a tough year for the M.T.A. This is the second serious accident this year.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
