Washington D.C. Metro Crash Jolts Personal Injury Attorneys from Coast to Coast
Date:7/9/2009

They also know that there are many opportunities for operator error and automated system errors.

"Whatever the cause of the accident, these things shouldn't be happening," says New York personal injury attorney Perecman.

Personal injury attorneys made note that following fatal and nonfatal crashes on the Metro, including this one, the NTSB has criticized the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Administration for failing to fix known safety problems. Reports from the NTSB make mention of ignored warnings from front-line managers, disregard for their recommendations, and failure to learn from its mistakes.

"Whenever an accident like this happens, it is truly a tragedy. A bigger tragedy, that personal injury attorneys are well aware of, is knowing that death, injury, and property loss could have been prevented," says Manhattan based attorney Perecman.

Before the June 22 crash, there had been at least five fatal accidents in the history of the Metro, killing eight people.

"It's truly terrible this happened and I'm deeply sorry for the victims and their families," says Perecman. "Thankfully crashes like these are rare."
