California Train Accident Lawyer
Involved in a Public Transportation Accident?
Three thousand train accidents occur annually in the United States with a death toll of almost 1000. 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 road bed 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 is vital to successful train litigation. As a result if you are a victim of a train accident, it is urged that you contact a catastrophic injury attorney 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.
