Arizona Railroad Accident Attorneys

Compensation for Train and Railroad Accidents

train tracksRailroad and train accidents occur more frequently than you might imagine, particularly when you factor in the many ways such an accident can occur. Although major derailments and collisions tend to grab headlines, plenty of serious injuries occur every year at railroad crossings, on platforms, and within subway and metro vehicles. Many of these injuries can be lasting and painful, especially if they involve a traumatic brain injury or any kind of spinal impact. Litigating cases such as these requires considerable expertise and commitment, which is why only a handful of personal injury attorneys in Phoenix can boast successful railroad liability records in Arizona.

Vehicle Collision with a Train

Some of the simplest train accidents are also the most deadly. Collisions with moving trains at crossing points kill over a thousand motorists each year, for instance, and many such accidents are preventable. The spread of automation in our switching networks have left ample room for human error, and often such accidents occur because a single expired light or sign is out of service. If the train doesn't miss the signal, a motorist might, and the resulting collision can be deadly for all parties involved. Even a glancing blow from a vehicle of this size can prove fatal.

FELA (Federal Employers Liability Act)

Bigger accidents that involve FELA statutes and multiple plaintiffs are less common, but they are important to settle fairly as well. Some of these occur without another train involved at all, and may be attributable to network problems, failed equipment, or conductor error. Subway derailments, for instance, can happen for any number of reasons, and distinguishing the different overlapping liabilities takes patience and wherewithal. This is why you want to work with an effective train accident attorney on litigation such as this, especially if you are facing contradictory explanations of the event.
