Experience You Can Count On In Train Accident Litigation

Our AV-rated law firm has earned a sterling reputation for providing effective counsel in train crash litigation. As such, we have received countless referrals and have frequently served as lead counsel in railroad accident lawsuits in North Carolina and in other states.

We handle railroad accident cases involving victims who have suffered permanent disabilities or wrongful death. Common factors leading to train derailment, railroad crossing accidents (railroad car crashes), and other railroad incidents can include:

  • Train conductor/operator negligence
  • Equipment defects
  • Railroad track defects
  • Signal defects
  • Other causes

Our familiarity with the railroad industry and in litigating complex railroad accident 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?

Our ability to travel on short notice via our own airplane to the scene of train crashes in North Carolina and nearby states can represent an advantage for clients pursuing wrongful death or catastrophic injury compensation following a railroad accident.
