Why should I hire New York train accident lawyer Jonathan C. Reiter?

Experience matters. That's why it's critical you have a knowledgeable train accident law firm working with you after your accident. Injury victims and families of people who died in a train accident often need to fight for compensation.

When you have a hard-working, detail-oriented attorney on your side, you can make sure that train companies and their insurance providers fairly compensate you. We're able to take this aggressive approach because we have the facts and the law on our side.

We consistently gather information about train accidents because we know what evidence to look for to support a claim and we know what questions to ask. We're also familiar with the wide range of rules and regulations governing train accidents in the United States.

In one particular case, attorney Reiter's client was chased onto LIRR tracks by assailants trying to rape her.  The train operator saw her on the tracks from a mile away but failed to apply his brakes until he was too close to avoid hitting her, causing severe injuries, including amputation of her right arm. A settlement of approximately $600,000 was obtained for our client.

We handle train accidents for all national and regional trains that operate in the New York City area, including:

  • Amtrak
  • Metro-North Railroad
