The result of a railroad accident between a train and a pedestrian or motor vehicle is almost always tragic.
Accidents occur as a result of the negligence of the driver of the motor vehicle or pedestrian.
In some cases, however, the operator of the train, the railroad, or another party may be liable.
If you have been involved in a train accident, contact a Train Accident Attorney for help with your personal injury case.
Dangers at the Crossing
Railroad crossings can be substandard or require repair to function properly.
Crossings are not always secured by moving crossbars, and the vision of approaching vehicles can sometimes be obscured by another stopped train on a nearby track.
