Train Accidents Attorney and Investigation Law Firm
There are two kinds of railroad injuries. The first kind is a traumatic railroad accident that results in an immediate injury. These railroad injuries include cuts, broken bones, spinal injuries, loss of limbs, burns, and even death. In the event of an accident, it is critical to consult with an experienced attorney who can collect and preserve relevant evidence in your case, identify the responsible parties, and pursue just compensation for your injuries.
The second type of railroad injury is an occupational injury that develops over time, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, mesothelioma from asbestos exposure, or cancer from toxic chemical exposure. In these cases, you will need an attorney who can effectively pursue every avenue of recovery and ensure that you have appropriate documentation for your case.
If you have suffered a traumatic railroad accident or railroad injury, we can help.
