Unique Experience In Complex Train Accident Cases
Accidents at a railroad crossing can be catastrophic, due to the sheer size and power of trains. With a unique understanding of such accidents and prior experience in cases involving high-traffic areas, the attorneys at Johnson & Associates are prepared to take on your case. When you or a loved one has sustained a serious or fatal injury from a train accident, our attorneys can be instrumental in aggressively pursuing your case.
We Understand The Nature Of Train Accidents
Our attorneys have litigated several cases involving railroad-highway crossings in Ohio. We understand the history of such crossings, including how they were developed and the current dangers they pose.
At a railroad crossing, there should be both lights and audible sounds to warn of a train crossing. Unfortunately, many railroad crossings are aging structures, which can result in gate crossings with malfunctioning signals. This is especially true in rural communities. Many signals no longer work and few are advocating for them to be upgraded or replaced.
Little to no warning at a gate crossing can cause nearly unavoidable accidents, if pedestrians and vehicles are unaware of an approaching train.
The Skill To Conduct A Thorough Investigation
Railroad accidents have the potential to involve multiple liable parties, including the:
- Train conductor
- Railroad company
- Insurance company
- Manufacturer of defective parts
- Party responsible for maintenance
State and federal laws can also play a role in such cases, as a series of complex laws dictate railroad operations. We are skilled in undertaking such complicated cases and are confident in our ability to recover fair and just compensation for what you have suffered.
With a comprehensive understanding of the unique factors that can lead to train accidents, we have both the resources and experience to thoroughly investigate the cause of the accident that led to a serious or fatal injury.
