NFTA Metro Injuries

Buffalo’s NFTA Metro is more than a mere subway line. Running from the University at Buffalo’s South Campus near Eggertsville to the Canalside district along the Buffalo River, the Metro is a lifeline that connects the city’s vibrant downtown area to the very outskirts of town. Because of the Metro’s unique role in Buffalo’s infrastructure, filing claims for injuries sustained while riding the train must be done in a specific way.

In Buffalo, if you are injured on the Metro, where the Niagara Falls Transit Authority (NFTA) operates, you must file a Notice of Claim against the NFTA within 90 days of the incident. That filing preserves your right to file a lawsuit, which must then be filed within one year of your incident. If, however, you fail to file that Notice of Claim, you may lose your right to file a lawsuit later. The NFTA also has a special right to take a statement from you early in the case and then use that statement later in the pending lawsuit. That is why it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after your injury so that you can meet those deadlines and preserve your rights going forward.
