The railroads have millions of dollars and hundreds of lawyers whose goal is protect them from lawsuits and deny liability. If you or a loved one have been injured or lost their life due to a railroad accident, you need fighters like the railroad accident lawyers at Ken Nunn Law Office on your side to get the settlement you deserve. I have helped many people who have been injured or the families of those who have been wrongfully killed because of poorly designed railroad crossings and negligent acts on the part of the railroads themselves.
If the insurance adjuster offers you money, how do you know the offer is fair? You’ll never know unless you contact us.
The most common types of train accidents are collisions with other trains, collisions with passenger vehicles and single train accidents. Railroad accidents can also cause secondary conditions such as fires and hazardous waste spills.
The Federal Railroad Administration reports that more than half of all railroad accidents occur at unprotected crossings and more than 80 percent of railroad crossings don’t have adequate warning devices.
The main causes of train accidents include:
- Poor visibility
- Failure to maintain crossings (lights, crossing guards, warning signs)
- Mechanical failure
- Engine error
- Failure to warn of an approaching train
- Poorly trained operators
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Failure to maintain tracks
- Inexperienced passenger vehicle drivers
