Washington, DC Train Accident Attorney

Trains are an integral part of Washington, DC’s transportation system. Whether it is Amtrak, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s (WMATA) Metrorail, the Virginia Railway Express (VRE), or the Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC) train, countless commuters rely on these train systems to get to and from home, school, work, and everywhere in between. However, commuting by train is not without risk.

In 2022, train accidents caused approximately 954 deaths nationwide, according to the National Safety Council. That number represented an 11% increase over 2021 and was the highest death rate since  2007. The rate of non-fatal injuries was even higher. While collisions with pedestrians or vehicles at railroad crossings, malfunctioning equipment, and derailments can result in extreme injuries, even minor incidents, such as slip and fall cases or injury from unsecured luggage, can have a life-altering effect on accident victims.

A Washington, DC, train accident lawyer from Morgan & Morgan can advocate for your rights or that of a loved one injured in a train accident.
