MBTA: Commuter Rail, Subway, and Bus Accidents


For the 650,000+ residents of Boston, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) is a necessary and unavoidable part of daily life. Unfortunately, accidents caused by the MBTA and its employees are quite common, and many of these accidents result in serious injury.

These incidents come in many forms, including:

  • MBTA train/subway collisions or derailment
  • MBA bus or trolley collisions
  • Injury while getting on/off an MBTA vehicle
  • Pedestrian(s) being struck by an MBTA vehicle
  • Accidents on MBTA property

Cases involving the MBTA are typically governed by complex state and federal regulations. These laws strictly dictate how and when claims can be brought. Sheff & Cook is highly experienced in navigating this system. We recognize that injured people are entitled to damages for their pain and suffering, lost wages, medical treatment expenses and much more. Our train and bus injury attorneys work to provide a comfortable atmosphere where the victim’s needs are met with tenacious advocacy. 

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured by or while using MBTA transport, including buses, trolleys, subway, or trains, contact our team to discuss your options.
