A train accident will cause devastating property damage and catastrophic injuries. It is not uncommon for these accidents to result in loss of life.

If a car was stuck on the tracks at a railroad crossing or the train derailed, the resulting devastation can be widespread. In these situations, the injured or surviving family members need a strong accident attorney to fight on their side.

Essex County Railroad Accident Lawyer

Train accidents, while uncommon, do occur with some regularity. Often, these accidents are caused by any number of factors, including:

  • Operator fatigue
  • Operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Reckless driving or speeding to maintain a schedule
  • Derailment
  • Failure to properly warn a railroad crossing
  • Failure to maintain equipment
  • Defective safety equipment such as horns, lights or crossing signals

The conductor and the company both have to maintain a high duty of care and safety. Both the train passengers and the vehicles on the ground are at risk if a conductor becomes negligent or inattentive while controlling the speed of a rushing train. We will negotiate with the insurance carrier to ensure you receive a beneficial settlement to account for your lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering. If you have lost a loved one in the accident, we will explore the possibility of filing a wrongful death claim. Schedule a free consultation at either our Hackensack or Clifton offices.
