Metro Accident Lawyer

Metro accidents happen far more than we may realize. Although they may not occur as frequently as car accidents, they certainly happen and when they do they consequences can be fatal. When you step onto the Metro, you are primarily trusting the driver and the Metro company to ensure your safety throughout your travels from point A to point B. You should not have to worry about getting into an accident along your ride and you especially shouldn’t have to worry about getting a major injury along your route. While most Metro rides go as according to plan, there are always exceptions. In the cases where Metro accidents do occur, it is important to know all the facts to better inform you when you hire legal counsel to aid your case. If you or someone you know has been a victim of a Metro accident, it may be in your best interest to reach out to Cohen & Cohen, a trusted law firm serving Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia, and surrounding areas, which specializes in Metro accidents.

Americans ride the Metro in high numbers all across the country. Washington DC, for example, houses the third most frequently used rapid transport companies, the Washington Metro. Every year, there are upwards of 229,595,000 riders. This is a massive number of Metro users that all trust that the Metro will efficiently and safely transport them from place to place. When this doesn’t happen, however, the consequences are grave.

Every Metro accident case is different. There are a wide variety of elements that go into ensuring your safety every time you ride the Metro, ranging from the driver’s attentiveness to the very manufacturing and mechanics of the Metro. While there are few uncontrollable factors, most Metro accidents can be avoided. Those that do occur are often a result of some degree of negligence on the part of the Metro company. Some of the most common causes of Metro accidents include (but are not limited to):

  • Driver fatigue
  • Malfunctioning Metro equipment
  • Driver under the influence of alcohol and other drug-related substances
  • Collisions with other Metros
  • Collisions with other automobiles
  • Track worker accidents
  • Derailment of Metro car

Regardless of the cause of the accident, any injury you suffer as a direct result of a Metro accident should be compensated for. Injuries can be emotionally difficult, and they can also cause a serious amount of legal and financial complications. One of the most challenging aspects of dealing with an injury, whether it be a head injury or spinal cord damage, is trying to deal with the mounting medical expenses that come with proper treatment. It should come as no surprise that the American medical system is costly, and poses an economic burden on most victims and their families. It is the responsibility of the Metro companies to pay you your fair compensation.

If you or someone you love is a victim of a Metro accident, do not hesitate to reach out to Cohen & Cohen and we will be more than happy to set you up with an experienced Metro accident lawyer on our team.

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.
