Railroad Accident Attorney

Protecting the Rights of Railroad Workers and Their Families

As a railroad worker, you are exposed to various railroad accidents and railroad injuries. You and your co-workers also face uphill battles when dealing with retaliation, discrimination and labor disputes. These situations can have devastating effects on your ability to work and support your family.

Experienced and Prepared to Handle Complex Rail Claims

For more than three decades, George Cahill of Cahill & Perry, P.C. Attorneys at Law, has remained the go-to attorney for injured railroad workers and their families in New York, Connecticut, Boston, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. George Cahill and Scott Perry fight hard for workers and devote personal attention to each client to help level the playing field in struggles between rail labor and rail management. We have collected more than $150 million for people involved in railyard accidents and personal injuries stemming from unsafe working conditions.

Railroad Passenger Cases

Cahill & Perry, P.C. also represents injured train passengers. Metro North's train collision and derailment in Bridgeport, Connecticut on May 17, 2013 resulted in many passengers getting injured. Not only does Cahill & Perry, P.C. represent passengers who were injured in that derailment, we also represent passengers who were injured in other railroad related accidents ranging from slipping on ice or falling into gaps between trains and platforms to passengers who have been injured due to unsafe railroad equipment, practices, or procedures. We continuously strive to promote railroad safety by holding railroads fully accountable for negligently injured passengers.

Depending on where an accident happened, there can be very short deadlines for protecting your legal rights. If you are an injured passenger, contact a lawyer immediately to protect your legal rights.
