PERSONAL INJURY | TRAIN ACCIDENTS | COMMUTER TRAINS | FREIGHT TRAINS | COLLISIONS WITH OTHER TRAINS | DERAILMENTS | TRAIN / CAR ACCIDENTS | PASSENGER INJURIES | TRAIN / PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS
With the increased costs of motor vehicles, gasoline, parking and vehicle maintenance in today’s economy, more and more people are using commuter trains such as Caltrans and Metrolink instead of driving. Though these trains are sophisticated and modern modes of transportation, accidents still occur. When they do, the results are often devastating. If you or a loved one has beeninjured in a train related accident, you want an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you get full and fair compensation for all your losses.

PROTECTING PEOPLE INJURED IN TRAIN ACCIDENTS
We protect the rights of people injured in any type of accident involving a train, including
- collisions between trains.
- derailments. We protect the rights of passengers, motorists, pedestrians, bystanders and landowners in the event of a train derailment. See our page on train derailments to learn more.
- train / car or train / pedestrian accidents.
- crashes at unmarked railway crossings.
- injuries resulting from driver negligence, inexperience, fatigue or lack of training.
With a train’s massive size and speed, the many passengers on a train, and the large amount of cargo transported by rail, the types of injuries suffered in a train accident can be severe. We handle cases involving all types of injuries, from sprains, bruises or pulled muscles to broken bones, traumatic brain injury (TBI),spinal cord trauma, paralysis, chemical or other burns, or amputation or loss of limb. Our lawyers also handle wrongful death claims related to train accidents.
Because of the severity of most injuries suffered in a train wreck, damages can be substantial. You may be unable to work for a long period of time, if ever. You may have substantial medical bills and need long-term medical care, including rehabilitation or physical therapy. We will help you pursue recovery for all your losses.
We handle all personal injury claims on a contingent fee basis. We will only charge attorney fees if we recover compensation for your losses.
