Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Metro train accident law firm Washington DCEven though the Metro provides economical and safe transportation for nearly 1 million people every day, it is not always safe and the need for a good Metro train accident law firm Washington DC commuters can rely on, is on the rise. If an injury was suffered while on a train or someplace on WMATA property, the victim may be entitled to compensation. Many Metro train accident victims find it helpful to seek compensation for their injuries with the help of a personal injury law firm that is experienced with Metro train accidents and WMATA related injuries.

The Metrorail which is operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) is the second busiest transit system in the nation. It serves people in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia and many of the surround states.

Many people have blamed Metro accidents and personal injuries on WMATA’s insufficient safety measures and upkeep of their trains, tracks and stations.

Metro Accident and WMATA Related Injuries

Injuries sustained from Metro accidents can be anywhere from minor to serious, sometimes even fatal. If someone is injured while on WMATA property, depending on the circumstances, this kind of injury could also be anywhere from minor to fatal.

  • Typical Metro accidents include:
  • Collisions between trains
  • Derailments
  • Operator errors
  • Faulty equipment
  • Improperly maintained tracks
  • Improperly maintained trains
  • Excessive speeds
  • Improperly switched lines

Injuries that occur on WMATA property are often caused by:

  • Poorly maintained stations, waiting areas and platforms
  • Poorly lit stations, waiting areas and platforms
  • Insufficient security and access to help
  • Failure to accommodate disabled people
  • Slick or uneven walking surfaces
  • Poorly maintained pedestrian areas (walkways, stairways, etc.)
  • Falling objects
  • Violent attacks and muggings

The above lists are not comprehensive nor are they intended to be legal advice. If you or someone you love has been injured in a Metro train accident or on WMATA property, or unexpectedly died because of this, it may be in your best interest to contact the automobile accident lawyer Washington DC Metro train accident victims and their families can rely on.

Compensation for Metro Accident Victims and WMATA Related Injuries

When someone is injured or dies because of someone else’s, or another party’s, negligence, or reckless or malicious behavior, the victim and/or the victim’s family may be entitled to compensation. While the laws that determine this sort of claim differ from state to state, victims and their families typically seek compensation through a personal injury claim. When it comes to victims of Metro accident and WMATA related injuries, many victims find it helpful to have a personal injury law firm that has experience successfully defending the rights of Metro accident victims and their families, on their side.

The reasons an injured victim and their family, or the surviving family members of a deceased personal injury victim, may seek compensation for often include but are not limited to the following:

  • Emergency services costs
  • Medical bills
  • Hospital bills
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of ability
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of childcare
  • Loss of household management and/or maintenance
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral costs
  • Burial or cremation costs
  • Loss of benefits
  • Loss of retirement
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of parental guidance

The above are just some of the reasons that people seek compensation for personal injuries. If you or someone you love was injured in a Metro train accident or something that happened on WMATA property, you may be entitled to compensation.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
