Every three hours, a person or vehicle is hit by a train, according to Newsweek; the U.S. Department of Transportation reports there are nearly 6,000 train-car crashes every year. Accidents involving freight, passenger or commuter rail require a law firm with the sophistication and experience necessary to investigate the complex physics, engineering and regulatory concerns involved.
We know that train accidents can be caused by many factors: human error, mechanical failure, track problems and inadequate signage and safety equipment among them. We identify each accident’s primary cause, then create a compelling reconstruction and engage the country’s top experts. Through decades of experience litigating after accidents, we are adept at unwinding the local, state, federal and business guidelines – and finding answers, accountability and compensation.
