What Makes a Subway Injury Eligible for Pursuing a Claim?

Whenever we take the subway, we make a green and fast decision to reach our next destination. However, most forms of transportation are controlled by humans, ultimately meaning we put our safety partially in the hands of those who can make mistakes. You can receive severe injuries while on the subway, whether you slip and fall, get in a crash, or are injured by a manufacturing or upkeep issue. But how do you prove that a subway company owes you compensation for your losses and injuries?

Proving your eligibility for filing a claim and winning compensation can be difficult, but working with a lawyer can make the process much easier. To confirm eligibility, you must demonstrate that someone owed you a duty of care, they were negligent to that duty, your injuries resulted from that negligence, and you’ve suffered economic losses from the accident. Working with a lawyer from the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP makes tackling this complex process far more manageable. Contact us for assistance with your case, and you can retain our support.

How to Prove Eligibility for Compensation in Your Subway Claim?

When you face subway injuries, you will likely be eligible to receive compensation after holding the liable individuals accountable. However, proving this liability can be difficult and requires you to show four aspects of your case are valid. The following are necessary to demonstrate for you to win compensation:

Owed Duty of Care

You are owed particular care whenever you visit a location, either as transportation or a fixed physical location. All people are expected to act in a way that prioritizes safety and well-being, including for yourself.


When others break the duty of care they owe you, they act negligently. By acting negligently, they can put you in harm’s way and cause serious injuries. For instance, refusing to follow the speed limit can constitute negligence in a car accident. Proving that someone has acted negligently can require additional evidence.

Injuries Due to Negligence

If you suffer injuries due to someone else’s negligence, you are much more likely to receive fair compensation. Proving this may also require evidence, including medical bills or other documents demonstrating health care soon after the incident.

Losses and Expenses

To receive compensation after a subway accident, you must demonstrate you’ve suffered financial consequences. Non-economic losses, like pain and suffering, scarring and disfigurement, or changes in quality of life, are not sufficient on their own to receive compensation. You must demonstrate impact on your finances with proof of economic losses, like property damage, attorney fees, physical therapy costs, and similar damages.

Proving these four pieces can be complicated, but you don’t have to manage these tasks alone. Working with a lawyer from the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP you will suffer far less stress and confusion during legal matters. Your attorney can assist you by collecting and analyzing evidence, estimating the value of your claims, and proving each of the above items during legal proceedings.
