Train Accident Lawyer
Involved In A Train Accident?
Three thousand train accidents occur annually in the United States with a death toll of almost 1,000. Train accidents can occur by a train hitting another train, a car or a bus. The operators often are distracted in fixed rail trains. The train can also derail on its own causing injury. The accident may be due to equipment failure, defects in the roadbed or negligence by train personnel. At a train intersection, a mechanical failure in the signal device or movable barrier can lead to train-car or train-bus collisions. Knowledge of the mechanics of train operation and the pertaining safety regulations are vital to successful train accident litigation. As a result, if you are a victim of a train accident, it is urgent you contact a personal injury lawyer familiar with train operation and lawsuits to commence your claim or lawsuit.
Compensation For Injuries
Given proof of negligent train operation, claims for compensation may be made for a variety of losses. These include:
- Hospital and medical bills
- Ambulance bills
- Loss of earnings, present and future
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Rehabilitation costs
- Nursing bills
If a relative has died in a train accident, the family may bring a wrongful death action to recover compensation for their loss.
Injuries To Railroad Workers
Where an act on the part of the railroad contributes to the injury, railroad workers may make a claim against the train company for full compensation under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act. Where no proof of company negligence exists, the worker may recover under the Workers’ Compensation Act. The worker may receive benefits even if he or she was at fault. These benefits include medical bill recoupment, loss of income and other benefits as provided by law.
