in railway accidents. Train accident attorneys help their clients establish
liability so that those who are responsible for a train accident will
be held accountable for their negligence.

Residents of California are all too familiar with the aftermath of major
train accidents. Since 1999, dozens of pedestrians have been killed or
seriously injured by passenger and freight trains on the California rail
system. In Glendale in 2005, an SUV abandoned on the tracks caused the
second-deadliest passenger train accident in recent California history.
In September 2008, a Metrolink passenger train collided head-on with
a Union Pacific freight train, killing 26 people and seriously injuring
over 80. The cause of this tragedy? Negligence on the part of the engineer,
compounded by a failure to install GPS monitoring equipment that could
have prevented the train accident.
The Costs of a Train Accident
Amputation, partial or complete paralysis, extreme disfigurement, burns:
any of these catastrophic injuries is quite likely in a train accident. Any
time traumatic injury is a possibility, the occurrence of high medical
costs is an issue. In addition to emergency room care, extended hospital
stays and extensive rehabilitation may be necessary. A train accident
lawyer specializes in recovering the costs of medical care from negligent
parties and from insurance companies who fail to acknowledge the high
costs of medical treatment.
Beyond the costs of care, serious injuries usually involve a major blow
to the victim’s earning power. Lost days at work and reduced productivity
can haunt a train accident victim for years after his or her injuries
have healed. Train accident attorneys are advocates for their clients,
and push for fair compensation for lost wages.
Not all injuries are physical. The emotional scars of a train accident
can be quite debilitating. Fear, depression, and personality disturbances
are common after-effects experienced by train accident victims. A train
accident lawyer ensures that all aspects of his or her client’s
injuries are accounted for in a damages settlement.
