Injury Lawyer NYC: Fed up with New York’s Subway violence

Injury lawyer NYC and members of the greater New York area expressed shock and genuine concern after yet another death in the subway. Although these deaths are all tragic and painful for the community, this one is particularly bizarre. For the second time in a month, a man has been shoved to his death in front of a train on a New York City subway platform, according to CNN.

“A woman wanted in connection with the death of a man shoved in front of a subway train this week is in custody”, New York police said Saturday.

At this point, it is unclear whether or not an injury lawyer has gotten involved in the case, or whether the man and woman had any sort of personal relationship. Answers will likely be uncovered as the investigation persists.

Witnesses on the scene told police that the woman was pacing back and forth on the platform, and was seen talking to herself only moments before pushing the man onto the tracks as the 11-car train entered the station. The man’s body was pinned under train after it came to a stop, according to CNN.

To the New York community and any injury lawyer NYC, news like this is sad and difficult to comprehend. The actions of this woman seem random and unjustified. Although all murders are senseless, this one has left a community in shock.

The woman allegedly made “statements implicating herself in the death of Sunando Sen,” said Paul Browne, the New York Police Department’s chief spokesman. “Police had described the culprit as a heavyset woman, wearing a ski jacket and sneakers. Security video shows a person running from the scene”, according to CNN.

Unfortunately, any injury lawyer or resident of New York will tell you that this case is not a unique one. Subway deaths and suicide happen at an alarming rate in the New York subway system.

Not long ago, Ki-Suck Han, 58, “was shoved onto the tracks in a Times Square station as a train approached. Naeem Davis, 30, a homeless man, has been charged with second-degree murder in that case”, according to CNN.

According to Sen’s roommate, Ar Suman, Sen owned a shop called New Amsterdam Copies and worked as a graphic designer. In response to the news of his roommate and friend’s death, Suman said: “I came home and I heard this happened, I am feeling very bad.”

An injury lawyer NYC has a job in which they see the darkest parts of humanity. They see people unjustly injured and abused, and in this case the see the loss of potentially innocent life.

These senseless crimes have a way of shaking up communities and causing indescribable pain for family and friends. The people of New York can only hope that heightened safety regulations and good police work will limit these incidents in the future.

The case is currently ongoing and no motive has been uncovered as of yet. The family of Mr. Sen has not reached out to media outlets at this time.

Erica Mendez is now being charged with second degree murder and committing a hate crime as she has recently made comments about intentionally injuring Muslims in retaliation for the 9/11 attacks, according to theNew York Times Breaking News.
