  • Common Causes of Train Accidents

    Train accidents can occur due to a variety of reasons, often involving multiple factors. Here are some common causes:

    • Human error
    • Mechanical failures
    • Track defects
    • Signal failures
    • Severe weather conditions
    • Obstructions on tracks
    • Poor maintenance of trains or tracks
    • Insufficient training for train operators

    When such accidents happen, our job is to step in and determine whether negligence or recklessness was a factor. If so, the next step is to fight for the compensation you deserve.

  • You May Be Entitled to Compensation

    Each case is unique, so the amount of compensation you may be entitled to will depend on what really happened and how bad the damage was to you or a loved one. In most cases, the injured can obtain compensation for:

    • medical expenses, covering hospital bills, treatments, and ongoing medical care;
    • lost wages to cover for time missed from work due to injury;
    • pain and suffering reimbursement for physical and emotional distress;
    • rehabilitation costs, including physical therapy and other forms of care needed for recovery;
    • Property damage compensation for any personal property damaged in the accident; and
    • the loss of earning capacity, if your ability to work in the future is impacted by the accident.

    Also, in cases of wrongful death, families of the deceased may receive compensation for the loss of their loved one due to a train accident. Common damages for wrongful death claims include:

    • Death and funeral expenses
    • Loss of companionship
    • Loss of consortium
    • Loss of inheritance
    • Any medical bills incurred before death
    • Loss of benefits the deceased would have provided
  • Train Accident Cases Are Complex

    Train accident cases are notoriously complex. For perspective, in a standard case, multiple parties can be involved, including train operators, maintenance companies, and government entities. Also, these cases can be expensive to pursue, since you’ll be taking on powerful individuals, companies, or organizations.

    That’s why you need an attorney with an in-depth understanding of federal and state laws, access to powerful legal resources, as well as experience in dealing with large corporations and insurance companies.
