First thing to do after a N.Y. subway accident?

What is the first thing I should do after a New York subway accident?

If you’ve been injured while in the subway system of the city of New York you should first makes sure that an employee of the New York City Transit Authority comes to your aid and reports the accident. They will fill out a number for accident reports based upon where they find you, how they find you, and how the accident took place. That’s a very important part of later proving how the accident took place.

The next thing that you should do is make sure that they call an ambulance for you, and the police. A lot of times the New York City Transit Authority will not call the police on your behalf. But make sure that the ambulance and the police come to the scene if you’ve been injured severely enough that you need to go to the hospital. But at the very least, if you’ve been injured on the subway, report it to the subway personnel and make sure that they write down your name, write down what happened, and give you a piece of paper back that has the information on it.
