Railroad accidents injure thousands of people every year. When a train derails, collides with a car or other vehicle or collides with another train, people can be seriously hurt or killed, either by the collision itself or by hazards created by the collision, including hazardous material spills.
At Walton Law Firm, we have experience representing people injured as a result of railroad accidents, including but not limited to occupants of vehicles, pedestrians and others.
We know how to investigate and analyze these cases to determine if the cause of the crash was mechanical failure, operator negligence, negligence in the maintenance of the train or track, or some other factor. Railroad accident cases may involve bringing claims for wrongful death, personal injury, traumatic brain injury, and/or property damage.
