We Hold The Negligent Parties Accountable

Subway Injuries • Bus Accidents • Uber/Lyft Cars • Taxis

Getting around New York usually involves public transport or a hired ride. If you were injured in your travels, you deserve to be compensated for your losses and suffering. But suing the transit authority or a private service can be tricky. And there may be a short window to bring your claim.

The knowledgeable lawyers of Palillo Law know what to do. We will identify the responsible parties and strive to recover your maximum compensation. We pursue personal injury claims in all five boroughs of New York City, as well as Westchester and Long Island.

​Recovering Compensation For Mass Transit Injuries

Our law firm can represent you in every scenario involving public transportation:

  • Pedestrians and bicyclists hit by a city bus
  • Auto collisions involving buses
  • Injuries while riding the bus or subway
  • Injuries at bus stops and subway stations

Many people think you cannot sue a government entity. This is not true. We have helped clients bring successful claims against the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA buses), the New York City Transit Authority (subway), the Staten Island Railway, the Long Island Rail Road and other entities. Our attorneys know how to investigate and document these cases to get good results.

NOTE: When suing a public agency in New York, you must file a notice of claim within 90 days of the accident. If this deadline expires, you forfeit your rights to recover damages. Do not delay in contacting our firm.

Injured In A Rideshare Or Taxi Accident?

Liability is not always straightforward in accidents involving a private ride service. If you are injured as a paying passenger or struck by a Uber/Lyft or taxicab, then the rideshare company or taxi owner’s insurance should cover the damages. If you are injured by the negligence of an Uber or Lyft driver while they are between fares, your claim may be with that driver’s insurance policy or a combination of the two policies.

Let the attorneys of Palillo Law sort it out. We deal with the rideshare service or taxi company, their driver and the insurance companies. The bottom line is that we will pursue every avenue to make sure you are compensated as fully as possible.
