  • Train Accident Cases Are Complex

    Train accident cases are incredibly complex due to multiple factors. To begin with, these incidents often involve several parties, including but not limited to:

    • Train companies
    • Train operators
    • Maintenance crew
    • Equipment manufacturers
    • Government entities.

    As a result, determining liability among these parties can be a difficult process, requiring a deep understanding of each party's role and responsibilities.

    Also, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) sets strict standards for train operations, safety protocols, and equipment maintenance. Proving violations of these regulations demands a thorough knowledge of the laws and how they apply to your case.

    The investigation process also adds to the complexity of train accident cases. It typically involves sifting through massive amounts of evidence, such as:

    • Maintenance logs
    • Employment records
    • Safety records
    • Black box data
    • Eyewitness testimonies
    • And so much more.

    This process requires access to powerful legal resources and experience dealing with the other side when building a case against them.

  • Importance of Hiring a Train Accident Lawyer

    Our train accident lawyers know the ins and outs of such cases, and that comes from years of experience fighting for the rights of the injured. They can:

    • gather evidence to support your case;
    • assess the injuries and losses you've sustained;
    • place a dollar value on your claim;
    • handle negotiations with big companies, and make sure you're not getting short-changed; and
    • represent you in court if necessary.
  • Legal Grounds for Filing a Claim or Lawsuit

    Whether or not you can file a claim or lawsuit in the wake of a train accident depends on whether you can prove negligence. Negligence, in such a case, can take many forms.

    For instance, it could be due to operator error, where the train conductor fails to adhere to safety protocols or operates the train under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

    Another common ground for negligence is poor maintenance. If the train or tracks were not adequately maintained, leading to mechanical failures or derailments, those responsible for the upkeep can be held liable. This includes the train company and possibly third-party maintenance contractors, as mentioned earlier.

    Defective equipment is another basis for a claim. If a part of the train, such as brakes or signaling systems, is found to be faulty, the manufacturer could be held responsible for the accident. In some cases, the failure of safety measures, like malfunctioning gates at railroad crossings, can also form the basis for a claim.
