Most New Yorkers find it easier to commute by public transportation in order to avoid the congested streets and highways. Unfortunately, those who suffer from disabilities may not be able to use everyday sources of public transportation. Access-A-Ride provides millions of rides for people in New York City who have disabilities and cannot use the bus or subway systems.
If you or a loved one was involved in an accident while riding in an Access-A-Ride vehicle, it is imperative that you hire an experienced New York Access-A-Ride accident attorney to help you get full compensation. The legal team at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. can help. We represent victims who were injured in accidents involving Access-A-Ride vehicles. We have the experience, knowledge, and resources to help you obtain the full compensation that you are entitled to.
Access-A-Ride is a Metropolitan Transportation Authority (“MTA”) program that provides individuals who cannot use public subways or buses due to a disability to receive transportation services. When accidents occur, the New York City Transportation Authority (NYCTA), which is privately owned and operated, may be liable.
Access-A-Ride is a public paratransit system that uses small buses and vans to shuttle certain individuals to medical appointments, grocery stores, and other important functions.
Although the Access-A-Ride paratransit system serves an important role for many New Yorkers, these vehicles are frequently involved in serious motor vehicle accidents. Examples of accidents involving Access-A-Ride vehicles include:
– Pedestrian getting struck by an Access-A-Ride bus
– Passengers in an Access-A-Ride vehicle getting injured as a result of an accident with another vehicle
There are numerous agencies and individuals involved in Access-A-Ride’s operations. As such, there may be multiple sources of liability. At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., our experienced NYC paratransit attorneys routinely handle personal injury claims against the NYCTA. We will seek damages from all negligent parties to make sure you and your loved ones get the full compensation you deserve.

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 have worked with Gersowitz Libo & Korek to resolve a civil case concerning the death of my parents at the hands of a drunk driver.

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.
