Our familiarity with the railroad industry and in litigating complex lawsuits equips us to ask the right questions in our investigation and pursue all avenues of liability. Did chemicals or hazardous materials release in a train crash? Were cross bucks improperly positioned at the railroad crossing? Did the conductor fail to alert motorists or pedestrians to the train? Were hauling cars owned by third-party companies improperly maintained or repaired?
Common factors leading to train derailment, railroad crossing accidents (railroad car crashes), and other railroad incidents can include:
