Hoboken Train Crash Kills 1 and Injures Over 100

On Thursday, September 29th during the morning rush, a careening commuter train plowed through the barrier at the end of the tracks and crashed into a wall at a terminal, killing one person and injuring more than 100. The individual who died was a woman standing on the platform, who was hit by falling debris. The catastrophic train crash unleashed chaos as part of the station’s roof came tumbling down in a jumble of metal.
The train was carrying approximately 250 passengers and traveling at a high speed when it failed to halt on the track. The startling impact tossed commuters around the crowded train and forced bystanders to their knees, as it transformed the historic station into a disaster area.Hoboken Terminal
Our thoughts and sympathies go out to all those injured in yesterday’s New Jersey Transit Train accident at the Hoboken Station. We are hopeful that the numerous innocent individuals who were hurt in the accident receive the medical treatment they need so that they can begin to heal from their injuries.

Were You or a Loved One Injured In the Hoboken Train Accident?

Although train accidents may not be a common occurrence, when they happen they can significantly impact the lives of those injured and their family members. If you or someone you love was injured in the Hoboken train crash, you may be entitled to monetary compensation and should seek immediate legal assistance.
You should be aware that New Jersey law imposes strict time limits on legal claims involving New Jersey Transit Trains, even those cases that appear to be instances of clear operator error. Any such claims must be presented within 90 days from the date of the accident. This strict time frame (known as the statute of limitations) includes claims for all injuries, regardless of the severity of the injuries, including death. If you fail to file your claim within 90 days, absent exceptional circumstances, you will be forever barred from seeking compensation. This law is known as the New Jersey Tort Claims Act.

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
