What to Do After a Train Accident

The actions you take after being in a train accident will vary depending on what type of train accident you were in. As mentioned, there are two key types of train accident cases we handle: train derailments or crashes and train-versus-automobile accidents.

After a Train Derailment

If you were on a train when it crashed, then you should:

  • Save a copy of your train ticket to prove you were onboard.
  • Talk with other passengers to see if they noticed anything you might have missed.
  • Note the company that owned and operated the train.

When you have been injured in a train derailment or a crash while riding as a passenger, the defendant could be the company that operated the train, like Metrolink. Such transportation companies often have vast resources to use in their defense, and they might even try to enforce an arbitration clause that was included with your train ticket. To give yourself a fighting chance against them, call (818) 873-0181 now.

After a Train Crash with a Car

If you were hit by a train while driving your car, you should:

  • Save any dashcam footage you might have of the accident.
  • Photograph the rail crossing and note any defects – or take a picture to show there was no crossbuck at all.

When a train accident is caused by a defective, damaged, or missing crossbuck, the defendant might not be the company that owned and operated the involved train. Instead, a municipal department of transportation might be liable for the accident. Suing a government or public agency is not easy. There are typically more legal parameters in place to limit a government agency’s liability, including reduced statutes of limitations that might require you to bring a claim within a few months, rather than a few years. Work closely with our attorneys to get your case moving right away.

What Kind of Compensation Can You Receive?

The compensation that you receive at the end of your train accident case will depend on the damages and injuries you have suffered. The goal of your case is to repay you for all the damages you have already experienced and to pay you ahead of time for damages that are yet to come. The worse your injuries, the more likely the total value of your case will be high.

We can help you sue for these damages and more:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future missing wages
  • Permanent disabilities
  • Pain and suffering
  • Vehicle repairs if applicable
