Railroad Crossing Accident Injury Lawyer
Trains roll through many towns and cross thousands of roads in the U.S. Not all of these railroad crossings are well-marked; and in the wrong circumstance, a vehicle or person can be hit by a train while crossing the train tracks. Railroad crossing accidents are rare, but they do happen, resulting in catastrophic injuries and fatalities. If you or a loved one are tragically involved in a train wreck on the tracks, Keith D. Leshine Attorney at Law, LLC is a railroad crossing accident injury lawyer who can provide you with legal representation.
Did you know that there are over 200,000 railroad crossings in the U.S., and over 5,000 miles of tracks in Georgia alone? Trains still provide a valuable service for transporting goods and people across the nation. While trains are still used, there are fewer now than in decades past. With fewer trains passing, some railroad crossings are not maintained as well as they should be. Without proper warning, anyone crossing the tracks can be at higher risk of becoming a victim of a train injury accident. In many cases, railroad crossing injury accidents are due to the negligence of the railroad or train company.
Train Wreck Accidents
You do not need to be on the railroad crossing to be injured by a train wreck. While vehicles and people are hit by trains at railroad crossings, there are also other instances where non-passengers are injured in train wrecks. If a train hits a vehicle or obstacle in the tracks and you are nearby, you can be injured by flying debris or the train derailing. While train wrecks are much less frequent than vehicle accidents, the injuries can be life-altering or fatal.
