Railroad Accidents

Railroad accidents can be devastating, causing severe injuries and fatalities. Causes of these accidents can include human error, mechanical failure, and track malfunction.

Railroad companies have a duty to maintain their equipment and tracks, properly train their employees, and ensure compliance with safety regulations. When they fail to meet these standards and an accident occurs, liability can be imposed on the railroad company.

Victims of railroad accidents can suffer serious injuries such as broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and burns. The recovery process can be long and expensive, and victims may face significant medical bills, lost wages, and emotional trauma.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a railroad accident, it’s essential to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you recover the compensation you deserve. A lawyer can investigate the cause of the accident, identify responsible parties, and pursue legal action on your behalf.

Trains are a standard mode of transportation for people commuting to and from work, as well as people taking trips for vacation and/or to visit family and friends. But the last thing you expect when heading to the store is that you will be involved in a train accident. Unfortunately, as with any other mode of transportation, train accidents do occur and can be especially devastating.

Collisions with other trains or objects, obstructions, derailments, and other types of train accidents can occur in rail yards, on the main track, and or at railroad crossings. These accidents may involve passenger trains or freight trains and may be caused by a number of different factors. In the event of a crash, however, occupants of the train and/or those in proximity to the train can suffer serious injury or even death.

While there are many factors that can contribute to a train crash, they are often caused by human error or even defective machinery. If you or a loved one has been injured in a train accident caused by negligence, the experienced train accident attorneys at McCorquodale Law Firm can help you decide on the best course of action.
