Finding a knowledgeable accident attorney is not an easy task. While train accidents are not a common occurrence, when they do happen they most often result in death and very serious injuries because of the speed and force of the train. Over the last two years alone a MetroNorth train has been involved in seven accidents that have claimed the lives of 12 people and injured over 90.

Train transportation is considered to be a safe and relaxing way to travel and it is very important that the parties who provide this service maintain the tracks and areas around the tracks, and ensure proper training to qualified employees.

The National Transportation Safety Board researches every accident to ascertain the cause and figure out how future train accidents can be avoided. It is critical that no matter how improbable a similar accident may be, that the proper steps and equipment upgrades are made to make sure these accidents become history.

The attorneys at Ronemus & Vilensky have had experience holding the MTA responsible for train accidents due to negligence.

The law firm of Ronemus & Vilensky was the first to be called upon to represent one of the victims of that derailment, a retired NYC police detective. We filed a $10 million claim against Metro North on his behalf because of the extent of his injuries.
