New York Personal Injury Lawyer Jeffrey Block of Block O'Toole & Murphy, LLP Offers Commentary In 'Crain's New York Business' Article About Metro North Train Accident
Date:12/4/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) December 04, 2013

On December 3, 2013, 'Crain's New York Business' published this article titled "After derailment, MTA braces for lawsuits". The article discusses the liability the MTA faces in the form of wrongful death and injury claims stemming from the horrific MTA derailment that, according to the article, killed four and injured some seventy more passengers.

Crain's turned to Jeffrey Block of Block O'Toole & Murphy, LLP, whom they described as "one of the city's top personal injury lawyers", to offer commentary. Block O'Toole & Murphy is a New York personal injury law firm that represents those seriously injured in accidents, including train accidents, motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents and others.

Responding to a question about the number of claims the MTA is potentially facing from the victims and their families, Mr. Block said, "Unfortunately, when you act in a manner that's negligent, careless or reckless, and you harm people, you have to be responsible to pick up the price tag for what you've done...And it's unfortunate that it's going to cost a great deal of money, but the true misfortune falls upon the families of those who were injured."

The article also noted that the MTA maintains a massive amount of private insurance coverage, and thus will likely only pay $10 million out of pocket, representing its self-insurance, which essentially functions as a deductible. After that, the MTA is insured with multiple carriers for a total of $400 million. Of course, the reporting thus far has indicated that the MTA's engineer was at fault for the derailment, by entering a 30 mile per hour curve at a speed of over 80 miles per hour, a fact also cited in this Crain's article.

Block O'Toole & Murphy, LLP is one of New York's leading injury law firms, having secured over $700 Million for its clients through top personal injury verdicts and settlements. The firm's experienced injury trial lawyers' thoughts are with the victims. As Mr. Block told Crain's, "Those are the people who are going to have to live the rest of their lives suffering daily with what went on as a result of either the train operator's negligence or the MTA's negligence in failing to maintain the train properly."

Block O'Toole & Murphy, LLP can be reached anytime for a free consultation by calling (212) 736-5300.
