New York Train Accident Lawyer Adnan Munawar Weighs-in on Horrific Metro North Train Derailment
Date:12/4/2013

(PRWEB) December 04, 2013

A tragic scene unfolded early Sunday morning when a Metro North train derailed in the Bronx, resulting in four fatalities and dozens of injuries. [ The New York Times reported that the commuter train was potentially heading into a turn at too high a rate and, for reasons that are under investigation, the operator was unable to slow it down enough to prevent eight of the trains cars from flying off the tracks. (Focus Turns to Investigation in Fatal Bronx Train Crash, December 1, 2013). According to officials, 11 of the 60 injuries were critical and three of the four people who died had been thrown from the train after the windows blew out.

Officials did not have a determination as to how fast the train was traveling heading into the curve, but they do believe that speed was a major factor in the wreck. According to the report, the train operator said that he had “dumped” the breaks, which is the equivalent of slamming all the emergency breaks in all the cars simultaneously, in an attempt to slow the train down, but it was to no avail. Dumping the breaks is considered a last-ditch effort and done only in the case of emergency. The National Transportation Safety Board and other officials were on the scene as investigations were under way.

“This was an absolutely devastating day for those who were injured or killed and their families,” said Adnan Munawar, Partner at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP. “Accidents like this do not happen often, and when they do, the surprise and magnitude of the train wreck can create a state of awe and disbelief for everyone involved. ”

“At this time, it would be improper to speculate on what specifically caused the derailment, but those who were injured and the family members of the deceased will have the right to be compensated once an official determination is made. While they may not want to think about filing potential claims in the immediate aftermath of such devastation, they should be aware of their rights and what time frames they have to work with in regards to potential claims. Anyone in this situation, whether they are filing a claim for injuries or for wrongful death, would be well advised to consult with an experienced attorney to handle their claims for them. The process is long and complicated, and especially in the wake of such an immense tragedy, it is essential to have someone guide you through who knows what he or she is doing.”
