Railroad Crossing Accidents
“Unmarked railroad crossings are among the most dangerous places on our roads. Railroads are negligent when a crossing arm doesn’t work or warning signals fail to sound.”
Partner, John Parisi
Were You Hit by a Train at an Unguarded Crossing?
Railroad companies are required by law to ensure that road crossings are well marked, safe for traffic and that lights and rail gates and guards are operational. Unfortunately, many people are seriously injured and killed every year at unsafe crossings. A series of recent Supreme Court rulings, however, has come down on the side of railroad management. As such, winning a fair settlement for negligence is becoming increasingly difficult.
