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.

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.

    Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
