The earliest railroad system can be traced back to ancient Greek and Roman times. Even then, it provided a simple service: the ability to move things from one place to another with less effort. The railroad industry is still an important part of our society. It’s responsible for moving raw materials across the country that would otherwise be unavailable to those areas. You would think that in this day and age, railroad-related accidents would be a non-issue. Unfortunately, many of the dangers that have been around for more than a century still exist today, leading to severe accidents and even death.
Although uncommon in Nashville, we still see a number of railroad-related accidents every year. At Ponce Law, we handle a variety of railroad accident cases, including:
