W&L Looking into Hoboken Train AccidentSeptember 29th, 2016
Weitz & Luxenberg is gathering information about a train accident in Hoboken, New Jersey this morning that occurred when a train failed to slow down in its approach to the Hoboken Terminal. In the wake of this tragic incident, Weitz & Luxenberg is looking into the cause of the accident and the extent of the damage that has occurred.
At approximately 8:45 AM, a commuter train traveling from Spring Valley to Hoboken on the Pascack Valley line “struck the Hoboken Terminal building on track 5,” according to the New York Times, causing significant damage to the train station. Serving as a transfer point for New York City commuters, the Hoboken train station is one of the busiest in the state of New Jersey, with 15,000 boardings each weekday.
As the situation unfolds, Weitz & Luxenberg encourages those involved in the accident to contact the firm about their experiences and how they might have been affected. Weitz & Luxenberg has a long history representing victims of train accidents. The firm previously investigated a 2015 CXS oil train derailment in Boomer, West Virginia, and worked with Gregory Bignon, an Army veteran injured in a 2013 Metro North derailment in the Bronx.
