Train Accidents

Subway and Commuter Train Accident Attorney in Pennsylvania and New Jersey

Offering Skilled Representation to Passengers, Pedestrians, Bystanders and Drivers

Subways and commuter trains offer a convenient and accessible mode of transportation for many who work in the city and live elsewhere. Because of the significant risk of injury in an accident involving one of these immense vehicles, subway and train operators (and their parent companies) have certain duties to exercise care to minimize the risk of loss to passengers and others. Too often, this duty is ignored or violated, resulting in serious injury or loss. If you or someone you know has been hurt on one of the SEPTA trains in the Philadelphia area you want an experienced lawyer to help you pursue compensation for your losses.

At the Law Offices of Neal S. Axe, we have aggressively represented personal injury victims in New Jersey and Pennsylvania for more than 40 years. We understand that every case is unique and that what you need to move forward with your life will likely be different from anyone else. We will take the time to learn about your needs, as well as the details of your accident, so that we can formulate the most effective strategy to get the outcome you want. We will keep you fully informed of all developments in your case, as well as your options, so that you can make educated decisions about how you want to proceed.
