Boston MBTA Accident Attorney
Every day thousands of Massachusetts residents use the MBTA Commuter Rail to travel in and out of Boston and its surrounding areas. According to a report published by the American Public Transportation Service, the MBTA Commuter Rail services about 131,000 riders each week day. It is known nationally as one of the top 5 busiest commuter rail systems in the country.
Additionally, the average weekday ridership of the MBTA Subway T system is about 1,154,774 people. With such high volumes of people using the train and subway services to travel around Boston and its surrounding areas, daily commuters often fall victim to injuries resulting from someone else’s negligence.
Causes of MBTA Accidents
In Massachusetts, MBTA train and subway operators have a duty to ensure that all passengers arrive at their destinations safely and securely. MBTA accidents often occur when a train or subway is being operated at an excessive speed. More often, accidents occur when there are unsafe conditions at MBTA locations, such as subway stations, train stations, platforms, stairs, escalators, and train passageways. Most train and subway accidents occur from either a vehicle collision or slip and fall accident.
If you have sustained injuries resulting from the negligence of a train or subway operator, you may be eligible for compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
MBTA Accident Injuries
Train and subway accidents often result in head trauma, broken bones, sprains, bruising and in some instances, severe internal injuries. In most cases, severe injuries can result in overwhelming medical expenses, lost wages and compensation, property damage, and pain and suffering.
If you have been injured while riding an MBTA train or subway, or while on an MBTA premises, you may be eligible to receive compensation if your accident has been caused by someone else’s negligence.
