Liability & Train Accidents

Proving liability in a train accident case requires a prompt investigation of the circumstances surrounding the collision.

Possible causes of the accident may include:

  • Malfunctioning crossing lights
  • Vegetation obscuring the crossing or lights
  • Failure by the engineer to sound the train's horn

If the railroad is responsible for the accident, the victims may be entitled to compensation for everything they have lost in the accident. Passengers in the vehicle are entitled to seek compensation regardless of who was at fault.

Attorney Dail Cantrell and our legal team will act swiftly to preserve evidence crucial to your case. It's not unusual for railroad companies to take corrective actions, such as trimming vegetation at a crossing, in the first few days following a collision.
