FELA Railroad Attorneys Train Accident Attorneys

How can our train and railroad accident lawyers help?
Just recently, we represented one of our clients against one of the largest railroad companies in the world.  We assisted our client in reaching a confidential multi million dollar settlement.  Millions of Americans use trains each day. Whether they are headed across the city to work or across the country for a family reunion, the train is often the cheapest way to get to their destination… and who can complain about the beautiful scenery? When trains aren’t maintained, though, or when reckless drivers try to beat the train across the tracks, a serious accident may occur. If you’ve been hurt in a train accident, our Train Accident Lawyers can help you recover damages for your injuries.

According to the Federal Highway Administration, a train accident occurs every 2 hours in the United States. In 1999 alone, there were more than 2,700 train accidents. While that may not sound like many train accidents take place during the course of the year, compared to other accidents such as car or motorcycle accidents, train accidents tend to be more catastrophic. That’s especially true when you take into account the weight of the train and the high speeds that trains often travel. In 1999, almost 900 people died in the train accidents that occurred.

Railroad accidents are often caused by:
  • Collision with another train
  • Derailment
  • Collision with a car or bus
  • Mechanical failure that leads to an accident
  • Inadequate security on the train
  • Dated and unsuitably maintained tracks
  • Conductor Negligence
Since there are many factors that lead to a railroad accident, there are many people who can be held responsible for your injury, loss of income, or pain and suffering. While it’s the responsibility of the railroad company to maintain the tracks and the train you ride, truck and car drivers also have the responsibility of following the laws and not trying to sneak pass the crossbars after they’ve been lowered.
If you’ve been the victim of a railroad accident, you may be able to collect damages for your injuries, pain and suffering, and lost income. A Train Accident Lawyer can help you research your case, and file your lawsuit in court.
