  • Common Types of Subway Accidents in The Bronx

    There are around 70 subway stations in the Bronx. While most riders get to and from their destinations without any issues, accidents can happen. Some of the common types of subway accidents include the following:

    Collisions and Derailment

    Keeping subway rail cars from striking one another or derailing is a precise, well-choreographed exercise. If a subway train travels too quickly or slowly, it can lead to an accident in which one train strikes another.

    If even one of these trains is traveling at speed, the force of the impact can cause a derailment that can injure passengers on the trains and bystanders nearby.

    Excessive speed can also lead to a derailment without a collision with another train. When a subway train travels at an unsafe speed, it is likely to lose contact with the rails, especially on curves and turns.

    Passengers inside the train cars can suffer head and back injuries, broken bones, and emotional trauma from the accident. Motorists or pedestrians near the derailment site can suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries if struck by the derailed subway or debris.

    Slips, Trips, and Falls

    Subway stations are crowded, noisy, and busy places. You are most concerned with getting through the station and arriving at the platform in time to catch your train. Yet, all along the stairs and walkways, there can be hidden dangers. Spills that have not been cleaned up, construction debris and tools, and other obstacles can easily lead to a slip, trip, or fall.

    Falls can lead to traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, among other harm. The risk of a severe injury increases if the slip or trip occurs while traversing stairs or motorized walkways. A slip or trip near the edge of a platform can prove fatal if a person falls onto the tracks and cannot get to safety quickly.

    Acts of Violence and Criminal Acts

    Although subways in the Bronx are monitored, law enforcement and public safety officials cannot be present everywhere at all times. There is always a risk in New York City that you will be the victim of a crime while using the city’s subway system.

    From forceful robberies to assaults and other criminal acts, a person can sustain various injuries of varying severity during an attack.

    Being the victim of a crime can lead to emotional and mental trauma and physical injuries. Victims of crime may feel less safe leaving their homes or using the subway in the future, which can impact their careers and enjoyment of life.
