Injured Man to File Lawsuit Against New Jersey Transit After Hoboken Train Accident

Whenever a major accident occurs, and people are injured or killed, it can be expected that at least some of those injured individuals or their loved ones will pursue injury claims. The recent Hoboken train accident in New Jersey has had our country's attention over the last few weeks as it is an accident that simply should not have happened. While the cause of the Hoboken accident is yet to be determined, many people will agree that something must have gone horribly wrong for such a tragic accident to occur.

Man Suffers Partial Amputation of Finger and Gashes to the Head – Files Suit Against NJ Transit

Approximately three weeks after the tragic Hoboken train accident left one mother dead and more than 100 other individuals injured, a man has come forward to file a lawsuit against New Jersey Transit. The man suffered a partial amputation of the middle finger on his right hand as well as gashes to the head. The man was riding on the NJ Transit train and dozed off shortly before the train accelerated into Hoboken station. The man does not know how he suffered the injuries and felt lucky that bystanders were able to rescue him through one of the train's windows.

The injured man is thankful to be alive but is left with injuries that have permanent consequences. First, the man will never fully be the same, and the damage is already done. Second, the gashes to his head could have symptoms that continue for months or years to come. Third, the injured man is still recovering emotionally from the accident, and emotional trauma is something that can last for an indefinite period of time as well.

Different Types of Injuries Suffered as a Result of Train Accidents

In addition to the injuries this man suffered, other injuries that many train passengers and onlookers suffered include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Broken/fractured bones;
• Soft tissue injuries;
• Damage to internal organs;
• Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries (TBIs);
• Amputation of arms and legs;
• Spinal injuries that may lead to partial or complete paralysis;
• Burns; and
• Death.

A young mother standing on the Hoboken train platform was the only victim to lose her life as a result of the train accident, and while we are all grateful that there were no additional deaths, this one and only death is simply too many, and one that should have been preventable.
