Washington DC Train Accident Lawyer

Were You Hurt in a Railroad Accident? Call Us for Help.

Some of the most overlooked types of accidents throughout the country are railroad accidents. However, when such accidents happen, there is a large probability that passengers will suffer severe injuries and, in the worst cases, death. Trains weigh several hundred tons, so the force and speed of a train can lead to devastating damages.

These types of accidents often occur due to:

  • Inadequate safety devices
  • Lack of safety equipment
  • Train derailments
  • Defective products
  • Train conductor errors
  • Distracted operators
  • Railroad negligence

If you have been involved in a train accident, you should seek experienced legal help right away. You may be eligible for financial compensation. Our train accident lawyers in DC understand the hardships you may be facing. Don’t wait – contact Simeone & Miller to discuss your case and see if you are eligible to pursue a personal injury claim.

The Responsibilities of Common Carriers

Trains that are responsible for transporting the public are considered "common carriers." Common carriers are not expected to provide a fail-safe guarantee of safety for their riders and others, but they are responsible for providing a reasonable level of care. In other words, common carriers must implement certain safety precautions.

If they fail to properly maintain their train tracks, care for their engines, employ safe operators, or perform any other number of standard safety procedures, common carriers could be held liable for the resulting damages.

Any of these issues could result in a collision or derailment, causing catastrophic injuries and even death to the train employees and passengers on board. After an accident, injured victims could be eligible to receive compensation for various types of damages, including medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of wages and earning capacity, future medical expenses, and more. If you were injured in a train accident, make sure you know your rights.

Fight for the Compensation You Deserve

A railroad accident can lead to serious financial and emotional damages. As a result, there can be many causes, complexities, and factors involved in these accidents.

You may be able to receive compensation for the following:

  • Physical pain
  • Emotional distresses
  • Doctor visits
  • Physical therapy
  • Medications
