Railroad Crossing Accidents

The railroad industry has a duty to ensure that the thousands of railroad crossings they maintain across the country are safe. Many accidents are caused by railroad companies who fail to adequately inspect crossing guards, clear obstructions from a motorist's view, ensure conductors adhere to posted speed limits, and use horns and lights to adequately warn motorists of an oncoming train. Any train crash involving an automobile is serious. We will determine who is responsible for your injuries.
