Roughly a year ago a man was killed at the Harlem subway station in New York City for intervening in a fight. The good Samaritan was tragically killed when he was shoved on to the subway tracks and ran over by the subway. The police stated that a man was fighting two women at the 125th street and Lenox Avenue 2/3 station when another man intervened in the altercation in an effort to resolve it prior to being killed. Incidents like this are tragic and demonstrate how better security protocols should be implemented in subway and train stations to avert horrific disputes. However, New York City transit authorities have a legal responsibility to protect their commuters by ensuring that all subway and train stations have personnel who are properly trained to respond to dangerous situations. One of those situations involves protecting commuters from third party assaults and if the transit authority fails to uphold its obligations, then it can be held liable in a premises liability suit.
