About Los Angeles Subway / Metro Accidents
Thousands of commuters rely on Los Angeles subways and metros for daily transportation to and from work or school. With the number of attractions throughout the LA area, many tourists and residents also utilize the subway system to go to shows, museums or see the many sights the area has to offer. This is an often safe and convenient, not to mention inexpensive, means of travel.
Unfortunately, people who ride subways may also be at risk of being involved in an accident at some point. Driver error, faulty brakes, negligence maintenance of the train or improper track maintenance may cause a serious or potentially fatal subway accident at virtually any time. A subway or metro passenger may also be at risk of injury while in the station or in the car.
If you were injured in a subway accident, you may have the right to take legal action against the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority or another party that may have been responsible for your injuries. An attorney can evaluate your case and determine against whom you may be able to file a lawsuit.
