Train Accident Investigations

At Ponce Law, we’re familiar with the common causes of train accidents, such as:

  • Derailments, due to poorly maintained tracks
  • Distracted train operators and conductors
  • Failure to sound warning signals
  • Inadequate protective barriers at railroad crossings
  • Inadequate sight distances for motorists at railroad crossings

No matter what caused your train accident, our train accident lawyers can investigate the crash and hold the train owner, commuter rail authority, train maintenance company, and other parties responsible for your and other passengers’ medical bills and expenses. Plus, we’ll do our best to negotiate with the insurance company to get you the maximum settlement.

Who Is Responsible for Train Accidents?

Train accidents are often multi-faceted, and many have contributing factors. When we take on train accident claims, we look at the following parties and their potential negligence, including:

  • Railroad and train conductors who may have behaved recklessly or negligently
  • Neglectful railroad owners who fail to maintain equipment, crossings, and tracks
  • Negligent engineers, when they design unsafe equipment, crossings, and tracks
  • Disruptive or unruly passengers who may have caused or contributed to your accident
  • Careless drivers who may have caused or contributed to your accident

When you contact us, we’ll investigate the accident and work to determine who was at fault. Whether it was a single party or multiple parties, we’ll do everything in our power to compile evidence that leaves no doubt about the cause of the accident and work to get you the compensation you deserve.

Types of Train Accident Claims We Handle

There are many types of train accidents, and our legal team has the experience and resources to build strong claims for anyone who was hurt by a train due to another person’s or party’s negligence. If you were injured in any of the following types of train accidents, we’re here to help:

  • Railroad crossing accident
  • Pedestrian accident
  • Head-on collision accident
  • Train derailment accident
  • Hazardous material accident and spill
  • Failed coupling accident
  • Passenger train accident

It’s important to get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible after a train accident. Tennessee’s personal injury statute of limitations is just one year, making it among the shortest in the nation. In addition, evidence can quickly disappear or become difficult to track down after train accidents.

The longer you wait to contact an attorney, the more skeptical the railroad, train, or insurance company may be of your injuries and whether they were caused by the train accident. Contact the legal team at Ponce Law today for a free consultation on your train accident claim.

Why Are Some Train Accident Claims Denied By Insurance?

Getting compensation for a train accident-related injury isn’t easy, even when there’s plenty of evidence that suggests drivers or passengers weren’t at fault or couldn’t have prevented their injuries from occurring. That’s because train and railroad companies are often well-prepared to fight potential settlement claims from victims of train accidents, and their insurance companies are likely to be reluctant to pay victims the money they deserve.

When you’re injured after a train accident, playing phone tag with the insurance adjuster and the railroad company is the last thing you want to do—especially if it ends with a lowball settlement or even no money at all. Let our experienced legal team take on your claim, while you focus on getting better. We know what you’re going through, and it’s our goal to take some of the stress of the accident off your shoulders.

Our No Fee Guarantee®

Your train accident claim needs experienced legal representation, but you may be worried about how much it costs to get a lawyer. When you get Ponce Law, you don’t owe us anything unless we get money for you. Our No Fee Guarantee® means that there are no costs unless we win your case. We believe in giving everyone equal access to the legal system—call today.

    Ponce Law assisted me after a very serious motor vehicle injury. The process, in my opinion, was extremely easy from the get go. I was kept well informed along the way, especially by my paralegal, Jennie Williams. She also responded very urgently whenever I had a question. Also, last minute, attorney Hannah Jones jumped in to assist me with the end of the process and I was extremely pleased with her knowledge and professionalism.

    I reached out to Ponce Law when my significant other and I were involved in an accident and Progressive denied our claim. Spencer and Jamelia were awesome and very professional with assisting us. After going back and forth with Progressive we were finally able to settle our case. If you have any issues with accident claims please refer to this law office, and ask specifically for Spencer and Jamelia.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
