The New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) is a division of the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA). The NYCTA is responsible for the operation of the subway system, as well as many city busses.

Contact the Orlow Firm
At The Orlow Firm, we take all cases on a “contingent” basis. A contingent fee means that the attorneys are paid only at the time when, and if, you recover money damages. A contingent fee allows an injured person with little or no money to obtain competent legal assistance. At the time recovery is obtained, the attorneys’ fee is a percentage of the award in the case. If there is no recovery, there will be no attorneys’ fees.
Free consultation: If you or a loved one suffered in a New York transit accident and you are wondering if you have a legal claim, our qualified and experienced lawyers will offer a confidential and honest assessment of your case.
