Ronemus & Vilensky Available to Comment on Metro-North Train Crash

Thursday, February 5, 2015

Attorneys Robert Vilensky and Michael Ronemus of Ronemus & Vilensky are available for comment on the crash in Valhalla, New York in which a Metro-North train collided with a vehicle, killing six and injuring 12. They can discuss the possible dangers at train crossings, what actions the train operators and owners can take to ensure the passengers’ safety and the potential for lawsuits as a result of this crash.

The firm’s attorneys concentrate their practice in personal injury, construction accidents, medical malpractice and other related areas. Last year, the firm filed a $10 million lawsuit against Metro-North on behalf of a retired New York City police detective who was severely injured during a Metro-North train crash on December 1, 2013 that killed four and injured 63; the case is still pending. They also recently successfully obtained $5.5 million for the family of an electrician who was struck and killed by a Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) bus while fixing the electrical and signal location under the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR).
