What information should I obtain after my New York subway accident?

If your injuries allow you to obtain information from the people around you when you’re injured, the most important thing that you can obtain is the names and addresses and telephone numbers of people that may have seen the accident happen. The Transit Authority, in my experience, will not actually do that. They will fill out a number of reports that you may get later on, but they will lack witness information. The first thing that you should do is get the names of witnesses, people around you, if you’re able to. The next thing you should do is take pictures of whatever it is that caused your accident. You should take as many as you can so that you have a documentation of what the condition was that injured you, because that condition may either be fixed or disappear before an investigator or an attorney is able to get down to the subway and find out what happened.
