Were You Injured On A New York Subway Or Bus?

If you are injured while riding on public transportation in New York City, you may assume that Metropolitan Transportation Authority will pay you for all of the damages you have suffered. Unfortunately, the MTA does not make it easy to recover full compensation. If you make one mistake in the claims process, you may lose your right to recover compensation.
