Commuter trains and other mass transit are easy and affordable ways to travel throughout New York and New Jersey. But train accidents, bus accidents, and other public transportation accidents happen, and the passengers are innocent victims put in harm’s way through no fault of their own. Train accidents can involve numerous liable parties including but not limited to:
- Train engineers
