We are experienced metro train accident lawyers that represent victims Metro train and Metrorail accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured while riding a Metro Rail Train in the Washington, DC area, you are eligible for a free legal consultation with our attorneys.
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) is the agency in charge of our buses and subways. Our Metro subway system has a series of sensors and computers on the trains and along the tracks that are supposed to control speed and braking. These automated systems are in place to prevent accidents like the one that happened recently.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is a federal agency that conducts inspections of public transit systems all over the country. The NTSB warned WMATA officials about safety deficiencies in the DC area subway system in 2002, 2004 and twice in 2006. Unfortunately, the NTSB has noenforcement capabilities and is only in a position to issue warnings and recommendations, all of which were ignored by Metro officials. The reason this was the case was because the WMATA decided that the recommendations would be too expensive to implement.
You or a loved one may have been injured as a passenger on Metro, MARC, Amtrak or VRE. If you were on a moving train in the DC metropolitan area, and that train was involved in an accident, please know we are experienced in train accident law, and can review you DC Metro accident case for free.
