The attorneys at Jaroslawicz & Jaros have an outstanding record of success representing people who have suffered injuries as a result of bus, train, subway, airplane and maritime accidents.

Train and subway accidents:

At Jaroslawicz & Jaros, we have successfully represented people who were injured while using, entering or exiting trains and subways, including people seriously injured in an Amtrak accident in Philadelphia, as well as the crash of a New York City subway train.

We were successful in obtaining a $3.6 Million settlement for a woman injured on the Amtrak train accident.

Boating and maritime accidents:

We have represented people injured while using or riding in boats, including individuals who were on or in the process of boarding commercial or personal vessels. We have represented many New York City Police Officers assigned to the Harbor Unit who were injured while doing their jobs. In many such cases, and even on Appeal to the Circuit Court of Appeals, we were successful in being the first firm to bring suit under the Jones Act for injured Police Officers, by arguing that they were covered as being “seamen”.

Jaroslawicz & Jaros has also successfully represented victims of the Staten Island Ferry Crash and were successful in obtaining a substantial verdict for a woman injured in the ferry accident.

Airplane accidents:

Jaroslawicz & Jaros has the extensive knowledge and resources to handle airplane accident cases. We utilized our experience in these matters to represent residents of a New York City apartment building that was severely damaged in an airplane crash caused by New York Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle.

We have represented many people who suffered injuries while on a plane, whether by food carts, defective seats, falling luggage, spilled hot drinks, or while boarding or disembarking from the plane.

Bus accidents:

You put your trust in the New York City Transit System. If you were injured in a bus accident, let us help you get the compensation you need for medical expenses, lost work time and your pain and suffering resulting from the accident. There is a document called a Notice of Claim that must be filed before you may sue the Transit Authority. Unfortunately, you only have ninety (90) days from the date of the accident to file the Notice of Claim.

If you or a loved one were injured in a bus, train, boat or airplane accident, then contact us today for a free consultation. Our lawyers have the experience, knowledge and skill to help you obtain the full and fair compensation you need and deserve.

You don’t have to face an overwhelming situation alone.
