Our Train Accident Lawyers Handle Claims Caused By Many Factors
A train accident lawyer, experienced in representing victims of train accidents can ensure that railroad companies and transit authorities pay for the negligence that caused your injury.

If a person falls onto a track and is injured, we will investigate that case to see if there was negligence in the maintenance of the train station that contributed to the victims injuries.
Private citizens account for the majority of train accident fatalities. Frequently, railroad employees are also injured in train accidents, and they may have special rights that entitle them to direct compensation from their employers under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA).
