A serious train accident involving derailment or collision is often catastrophic and can result in fatalities and serious injuries, including life-threatening burns. Passengers riding on trains are entitled to a very high duty of care from the operator of the train line. Many times, a train accident may also be the result of cars, buses, or trucks who have stopped on the tracks causing a train wreck and passenger injury. If you are injured because of the negligence of the conductor or the engineer, then the train company is liable for your injuries. Unfortunately, many train companies do not readily accept responsibility for their negligence.

I thank you for your services. You helped me through a sad time in my life. You were very supportive, easy to communicate with, thorough and available when needed. WD


 

Atlanta Train Accident Attorney Con't

Immediate investigation and preservation of evidence is often a critical element in proving a personal injury case involving train accidents. Investigation involves examination of the scene while the evidence, such as skid marks and gouge marks, is fresh. After a train accident, it is also critical to establish contact with the investigating authorities, who often will do accident reconstructions. It is essential that you immediately hire an experienced train accident attorney to investigate your claim.
When a railroad or train accident does occur, there are laws that govern whether or not the carrier is liable. There are many factors that determine if the railroad company was at fault and could have prevented the accident and resulting injuries by exercising the proper care and maintenance. Also, if the carrier is found liable, there are even more factors to consider as to what percentage of liability they will have to assume.

The laws governing liability in the case of railroad accident and injury are extremely complex. It must be determined that the railroad company was, in fact, responsible for the accident and was acting in a negligent manner. If the railroad is found responsible, it must then be determined to what extent they are liable.

Some railway accidents may not involve the train itself and could involve a slip or trip on a station platform or when embarking and debarking the train.
