When railroad & train accidents occur the results can be catastrophic, leading to extremely serious injury and in many cases even death.

There are many legalities and formalities involved in filing a claim against the federal railroad administration or even a train company such as Amtrak. Here at our law firm, we can help you sort through the corporate mess and help make your claim much stronger by gathering facts and evidence on your behalf.
Astoundingly, in the US there are well over six hundred railroads and literally several hundred thousand train tracks across the country. A very good portion of the railroad system is used for transporting cargo and freight. Many of these trains carry chemicals which are highly toxic and could cause massive damage if a derailment were to occur. Unfortunately, this is something that does happen, more frequently than one may realize.
Simply put, you do not have to be riding in a train or even employed by the railroad to incur serious or fatal injuries. In addition, there are numerous cases each year in which a car or truck is involved in a collision with a train. In some cases faulty warning lights or failure for safety arms to come down are to blame. The truth of the matter is there are so many possible causes for railroad & train accidents that it would be impossible to cover them all here.
The general idea is that if you have an injury or have lost a loved one because of anything that was caused by a railroad or train accident, then you more than likely have a good case in which to receive compensation for your pain and suffering. Contact us to set up an initial consultation.
