Train Accidents

Train accidents, derailments, collisions, jerk and jolt, unsafe door closings, dangerous railroad platforms, railroad crossing accidents, etc. may give rise to injury claims under Pennsylvania or Federal law. The railroad is a "common carrier" and as such owes a high duty of care to passengers for their safety. Railroad workers are in a uniquely vulnerable position because of the size and weight of the equipment they work with. Such workers are often entitled to make claims under the Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA). If you or a loved one was injured as the result of a train accident, call us now so that we can help you.
