Weighing in at several thousand tons, passenger and freight trains are
capable of causing devastating physical damage and
catastrophic injury and
death in the event of a collision. Whether the accident is one in which two
trains collide, if a single train is derailed, or if the train strikes
an automobile or pedestrian at a crossing, the results are frequently
life-changing or even fatal for the accident victims.
In many cases, the railway company is found to be at fault for these serious
accidents, whether through the negligence of the train's engineer or other
crew members or through a failure to uphold safety standards.
What to Do After a Railroad Accident
You may be approached by a representative from the railroad company with
a request that you make a statement about the accident or sign paperwork,
or they may even offer you an out-of-court settlement. Realize that they
are doing this not to give you fair treatment, but are actually attempting
to settle your case at a minimum of expense.
Don't agree to discuss the case or take any further action before consulting
with Farah Law, so that our El Paso railroad accident attorneys can evaluate your situation
and determine how much your claim for damages is worth. The economic impact
of a railroad accident can be considerable, and you should not waive your
right to pursue legal action by accepting a settlement that is less than
what you deserve.
