Train accident cases are very complicated because there are usually large companies, governmental entities, multiple insurance companies, and many other parties involved. Other factors such as equipment malfunctions, overloading, poor maintenance, and railroad regulations complicate matters in a typical train accident case even further.
Often, an expert must carry out a complete train accident reconstruction as soon as possible after the accident in order to determine all of the causes and identify the liable parties. Don’t handle a case this complex without the help of a personal injury attorney.
At KaplunMarx, we will fight for your rights and give you the best chance possible to win your case. Call or fill out the form on our website to schedule a free consultation with our Pennsylvania train accident lawyers today.
What Are the Most Common Causes of Train Accidents?
Train accidents occur for a number of different reasons. Some of the most common causes of train accidents include:
- Improper maintenance of the train track or the train itself
- Defective or malfunctioning parts
- Collision with another train, car, or truck on the tracks
- Conductor negligence or error
- Excessive speed
Our attorneys will immediately start investigating the accident to determine why it occurred so we know who should be held liable for your injuries. Then, we will aggressively negotiate with the at-fault party for the compensation you deserve.
What Should You Do After A Train Accident?
Focus on your wellbeing immediately following a train accident. Even if you do not need emergency medical assistance, you should visit a doctor’s office or hospital after leaving the scene of the accident.
Some symptoms are not noticeable for hours after the injury occurs, so it’s best to see a doctor right away instead of waiting for the symptoms to appear. Seeing a doctor as soon as possible also strengthens your personal injury claim.
If you fail to seek medical attention right away, the at-fault party’s insurance claim may question the severity of your injuries and your right to compensation.
You will probably field many calls from all of the agencies and insurance companies involved after a train accident. To maximize your claim–and ensure you are able to recover compensation–we strongly recommend you do not speak with them until speaking with a lawyer first.
Even a seemingly harmless conversation could provide the insurance company with the information they need to deny you the compensation you deserve.
There’s no doubt that seeking medical attention should be your first priority following a crash. But, after a healthcare provider has treated you for your injuries, the next item on your to-do list should be contacting an experienced train accident attorney as soon as possible.
Let your attorney handle the investigation and the negotiations with the insurance company so you can focus solely on recovering from your injuries.
How Much Will It Cost to Hire KaplunMarx Train Accident Lawyers?
Our train crash lawyers do not charge by the hour for their legal services. Instead, they work on contingency fees, which means they will not charge for their legal services unless they successfully recover compensation on your behalf. At KaplunMarx, clients pay us nothing until we win their case.
What Are the Legal Rights of Train Accident Victims?
If you or a loved one has been injured in a train accident, you may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical costs, including expenses necessary for ongoing treatment.
- Wage losses, including ongoing losses if your injury has made it impossible for you to return to your previous job.
- Pain, suffering and emotional distress damages, including compensation for post-traumatic stress, anxiety and decreased quality of life.
- Wrongful death damages, including funeral expenses, medical bills incurred before your loved one’s death and the for the loss of future income.
It’s not easy for train accident victims to recover this compensation–even though they are entitled to it by law. Let the personal injury attorneys at KaplunMarx protect your rights and aggressively fight for the compensation you deserve.
