MTA Accidents

Attorneys Who Understand MTA Accidents

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is a public corporation handling public transportation in 12 counties in New York and two counties in Connecticut. The MTA carries over 11 million passengers each weekday through various transportation facilities that include:

  • The New York City subway system/New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA)
  • Numerous New York City area commuter trains and bus systems
  • Numerous New York City area bridges and tunnels

The MTA is the largest public transportation entity in the U.S. and, like with every governmental agency, enjoys numerous legal protections. If you have been injured while using an MTA transportation facility, you will have to follow unique procedural rules, guidelines and timelines in order to recover full compensation. At Smiley & Smiley, we can help you navigate the complexities of MTA lawsuits and provide aggressive and caring legal representation.
