The impact of a train and a car can be one of the most catastrophic types of automobile accidents due to the weight and speed of a moving train. Many times death or permanent injuries occur. While the driver of the car may be partially at fault, there are other times whereby the train bears some or much of the responsibility. There are federal laws which govern the railroads. Many of these laws are in place to protect the public when they must travel across a railroad track. Negligence issues can involve things such as improper signage, broken or defective crossing guards, negligent cutting of vegetation for visibility, mechanical problems with the train, and driver error by the train engineer. Park & Durham handles these types of cases involving train accidents and understands the issues involved. We typically retain a railroad expert investigator to assist us in uncovering the reason for the train collision.
If you, your relative or a friend have sustained a personal injury or wrongful death due to a train accident, please contact Park & Durham immediately and put them to work for you. Time is critical. The railroad company will put their investigators and attorneys to work right away. Certain types of evidence must be obtained and preserved immediately or it may be lost forever or destroyed. This is why we urge you to contact Park & Durham as soon as possible after the train accident so that we can immediately put our team to work for you.
