Phoenix Railroad Crossing Accident Attorney

Railroad Crossing Accidents & Injuries

If a member of your family was injured or killed in a railroad crossing accident, it is important that you promptly hire an attorney who has the experience and resources to mount a thorough investigation.

Witnesses must be interviewed while their memories are fresh and physical evidence needs to be preserved, including photographs of the scene of the accident. The appropriate team of experts in accident reconstruction, physics, and railroad safety need to begin work on the case.

What Causes Railroad Crossing Accidents?

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), 232 people lost their lives in railroad crossing accidents in 2014. Approximately every 3 hours, a person or vehicle is struck by a train in the United States. The U.S. has approximately 150,000 public grade crossings. Of these crossings, approximately 35,500 have gates, 25,000 have flashing lights, and 1,200 have highway traffic signals, wigwags, and bells.

When an accident occurs, we often find that the cause is a defective safety guard, semaphore, or other railroad equipment. The driver of an automobile enters a crossing with confidence—and is hit by a train. Sometimes a car-train collision is partially or entirely due to the inattention of a careless employee, railroad maintenance problems, or the negligence of another motorist. The railroad company will have investigators on the scene within hours. Will you have a Phoenix personal injury accident attorney on your side to conduct an independent investigation?

If you would like to speak with one of our lawyers, please contact our Phoenix law office to arrange for a free consultation. Our attorneys have been handling a wide variety of accident claims for over 23 years, including those involving traumatic injury or wrongful death. If you hire our firm to represent you, our attorneys will soon be at the scene of the accident, building a strong case to seek maximum compensation for your loss.

These complex cases typically involve accusations of comparative fault, so preservation of evidence is critical. Railroad crossing victims often suffer such catastrophic injuries that a settlement may be reached only after our firm retains experts to calculate life care costs resulting from brain, spinal cord, and other injuries, or the value of the emotional and economic loss of support suffered by survivors in a wrongful death case. Our lawyers will see that experts handle every aspect of the investigation and medical evaluation of your case.
