Being in an accident with a train—or having this happen to a loved one—is shocking and devastating.
It’s difficult to survive a collision with a machine of that size, weight and force. When you survived, chances are you have catastrophic injuries.
No amount of money can undo the suffering you and your family are going through, but when conditions are unsafe at railroad crossings, you may have legal recourse to win compensation that helps you get back to some sense of normalcy.
This area of law is highly specific and different from more common car accident cases.
