We Launch a Full Investigation Into the Cause of Railroad Crossing Accidents
Our attorneys will launch a thorough investigation into the cause of your railroad accident and work to identify the cause of the accident. Several factors may be at play in your injury claim. We can determine if any of the following caused the accident:
- Defective rails or tracks
- Defective crossing gates
- Missing signage
- Defective stoplights and/or railroad crossing lights
- Train conductor error
- Defective train equipment
The NYC railroad accident attorneys at Dansker & Aspromonte can obtain the evidence that is necessary to the investigation. Accident reports, “black boxes,” GPS devices and other equipment that was on the train will be included in the evidence.
Car vs. Train Collisions Can Result in Serious Injury and Death
As a general rule, a train cannot stop to avoid a collision the same way as a car. Therefore, railroad regulations and statutes regarding injury claims and liability are highly complex. Our attorneys possess advanced knowledge of state and federal railroad laws, resulting in our ability to assess and handle highly complex injury claims. More often than not, the injuries sustained are serious and can include brain injury and spinal cord injury as well as result in death. If you have sustained a serious injury or if you require assistance with a wrongful death claim, our attorneys are ready to help you.
Dansker & Aspromonte offers experienced and dedicated legal representation to subway accident, bus accident and train accident victims. We seek fair and full compensation for your medical expense, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
