The lawyers at Golden State Lawyers, APC have helped injured people recover millions of dollars in settlements and court victories. If you were injured in a train crash, you should retain an experienced attorney to assist with your case. We do all we can to make sure all of your losses are compensated and that the responsible parties are held accountable for their negligence.

Who is Responsible for my Train Crash Injuries?

As in any transportation accident, when a train accident occurs a number of parties may have played a role in causing your damages. The attorneys at Golden State Lawyers will diligently investigate the details of your accident and pursue all possible negligent parties with the objective of successfully resolving your case through negotiation or trial. Potentially responsible parties include:

  • The train company or public agency – Passenger and freight train companies owe a duty to the public to maintain their trains in good condition and to ensure that their employees are properly trained, supervised and not overworked.
  • Track owner – Government entities and private companies must preserve the safety of their tracks.
  • Manufacturer of the engine or signal equipment – A defective product, train part or light signal on the train tracks almost always triggers liability on behalf of the manufacturer.

Train accidents can happen to anyone, and if you were injured in California, the attorneys at Golden State Lawyers are well-versed in train accident litigation and will present your case with passion and focus.
