Train Accident Attorney
Train Accident Law Firm Providing Legal Help in McKinney, Plano, Frisco Allen & North Texas
Train accidents may involve locomotives, commuter rail, subway, trolley, or local light rail systems. Railroad crossing accidents are more common than many people realize. Currently, around 3,000 people per year are injured in train accidents. A majority of injuries resulting from train accidents occur due to trains colliding with automobiles or due to passengers becoming injured while a train was in motion. Still more accidents are caused by inspection and maintenance violations. Accidents can happen at protected crossings due to safety equipment failure or at unprotected crossings where there are no warnings to indicate an oncoming train. Trains can derail due to poor track maintenance or a mechanical problem. Engineer fatigue and excessive speed also cause railway accidents.
These accidents can lead to hazardous chemical spills or propagation of toxic residue, injuring or killing residents living near the tracks. If safety was considered paramount, this needlessly high number of injuries could be reduced. Joe and his team know that a train must be operated according to the laws of the state in which it is passing through at the time of the injury as well as federal laws. Joe will assist you in the proper execution of your case. You can meet Joe and begin with a no-cost consultation at our McKinney, Texas offices.
