Railroad Crossing Accidents

Were You Hit By A Train At An Unguarded Crossing?

Railroad companies are required by law to ensure that road crossings are well marked and safe for traffic. Unfortunately, many people are seriously injured and killed every year at unsafe crossings. A series of Supreme Court rulings over the past several years, however, has come down on the side of railroad management. As such winning a fair settlement for negligence is becoming increasingly difficult.
