Train Accident Claims Lawyer
The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) reported that there were 2,225 train accidents and 1,842 incidents at public
railroad crossings in 2006. Railroad crossings and track-related incidents are some of the principal causes of non-employee railroad injury and death. Railroad crossings and tracks are regulated by the FRA. There are clear safety specifications for railroad grade crossing barriers, lights, signs and lines of sight. There are also policies in place to deal with non-employees on railroad right-of-ways and in rail yards.
Injured individuals who are not railroad employees have the right to seek compensation for pain, suffering and loss under federal law. In many cases, the railroad company’s insurance and legal counsel will attempt to negotiate a settlement with victims of a train accident. And predictably, the railroad company’s experts will attempt to settle claims for as little money as possible. These individuals are skilled negotiators and they are well informed of the laws affecting railroad accidents. You need skilled legal counsel that you can depend on to protect your interests and secure fair compensation for your suffering and loss.
