Injuries from a Train Accident
If you've been involved in a train accident, the injuries you sustained could be life-altering. Injuries can be as simple as fractures and minor scrapes, but can be as bad as a debilitating brain injury. Injuries can also include the following:
A train accident can involve hundreds of people and can involve multiple parties. A lawsuit may simply be against the operator of the train, but can also involve the manufacturer of the train, those that maintain the track, those that loaded the train, and even the cities that were supposed to maintain the train signals and crossings. Because of how difficult a train accident case can be, it is necessary to seek the help of our experienced injury lawyers.
Railroad Crossing Accidents
A train track can also be the source of horrible accidents for pedestrians too. Oftentimes, this is due to a faulty train signal or a gate malfunctioning. It can also occur when pedestrians are crossing the tracks or even walking near them. Accidents can also happen when a train isn't even involved as injuries can occur on and around the tracks.
Our lawyers can help you and your family navigate the difficulties of your case. We will determine who was at fault and fight to get as much compensation from that person or company as possible. We operate on a contingency-fee basis which means that you pay nothing upfront. You only pay our fee and reimburse us for our costs if we win an award or settlement for you.
