With approximately 470 train stations, more than 650 main line track miles for passenger service, and millions of riders every year, the New York train system is one of the most intricate and highly used systems in the country. New Yorkers and those who visit the state have the option of taking the subway or MTA as a major part of their daily commute. However, as affordable and convenient as the train system may be, riders are also subject to serious accidents. Unfortunately, train accidents happen all too often in New York.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a train accident, you may justifiably be injured, traumatized, confused and overwhelmed. You may not know who or where to turn to for help in helping you obtain compensation for your injuries. It is important to know that you are not alone. The NYC train accident attorneys at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. understand the devastating emotional and financial toll a train accident takes on victims and their loved ones. We are ready to fight for your rights and make sure you are fairly compensated by those who have caused your injuries.
When you are injured in a train accident, it is important to learn about your options to hold all of the parties who caused your injuries accountable for their negligent actions. Determining the parties who may be responsible for your accident is a difficult and complicated task, especially when multiple parties are responsible for the accident.
As such, it is important for New York train accident victims to hire an attorney who has the experience, knowledge and the financial resources to closely investigate the facts of the accident and navigate the laws regarding the case.
In New York City, you have various options for traveling by rail, including Metro-North, Long Island Railroad, Amtrak, New York City Subway, PATH Train, and Port Authority Train. If you are injured in an accident in any of these train or subways systems, you may be entitled to compensation.
Train accidents can occur for many different reasons, including:
Regardless of what the cause of your train accident was, it is important that you immediately hire an attorney who specifically handles these types of cases to help you get the fair compensation that you deserve. The legal team at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. urges victims to learn about their rights and take legal action right away to avoid missing the time limit (statute of limitations) governing the amount of time they have to seek compensation.

Justice means getting fair compensation. Without the help of a train accident lawyer in New York to expertly handle your claim, you may not get the full compensation for your injuries.

I would highly recommend the law firm of Gersowitz, Libo and Korek if you are looking for legal help and representation that is thorough, honest and personal. My family and I were faced with a horrible situation and both Jeff Korek and Ed Gersowitz were there from the beginning, keeping us well informed throughout the process and were always available at a moment's notice whenever we needed them. Their support staff was just as attentive and conscientious. They definitely made an awful situation easier to handle, and I am very grateful to all of them for that!
Working with Mr. Fruhling and associates has been an amazing experience, mainly because of the transparency in regards to every aspect. He was very patient with me. When I didn’t understand certain things him & his team explained step by step without any problems. Michael and his team constantly gave it their all to make sure they were always on top of everything. Cannot thank him and the rest of the office enough for all they have accomplished for me. Thank you!

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you! I hope this day never comes but I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help again.
