Representation for Victims of Railroad Accidents

As uncommon as it may seem, train and railroad accidents happen quite often.

Contact the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A. for advice and representation on train and railroad cases involving personal injury or wrongful death. Whether it’s passengers, crew members, or other railroad workers, every railroad accident case is different, and time is of the essence. We encourage victims and their families to seek immediate legal representation.

Railroad laws involving injuries aboard passenger trains, cargo trains, or other trains and related vehicles are not the same as other typical personal injury cases and differ in many ways. There are different rules which apply, including time limits which may affect your rights. Another obvious concern is preservation of critical evidence and putting responsible parties on notice, so that critical evidence is properly preserved. The intricacies of state and federal laws make it even more important that you obtain quality legal representation immediately.

Unlike many law firms, we don't just settle! We don't simply take what the insurance company wants to pay. Rather, we demand and fight for fair and just compensation for your injuries and all of your damages, including your economic and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.

Who is Responsible for Train Accidents?

Many railroad accidents occur due to negligence, whether it’s a mechanical error that puts a railroad worker at risk or the owner/employer’s lack of observance and failure to repair the problem before a crewmember or worker gets hurt. Mechanical errors are one of the most common reasons for railroad injuries and death. Fatigued railroad workers are another major cause of accident and injuries. Owners and employers must be held accountable, but oftentimes, are simply not. Contract law can play a major role in a railroad injury or wrongful death claim. Remember, responsible parties, like large railroad corporations and their insurance companies, do NOT want to pay damages. Oftentimes, these companies attempt to get crew members to “waive” their right to bring a claim under certain circumstances. These companies will attempt to avoid responsibility by compelling arbitration and avoiding a trial by jury.

At the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A., we take claim preservation and investigation seriously, and we work with a wide range of experts in the field of train and railroad law for the following type of claims:

  • All injuries and wrongful death
  • Unfit for service claims against owners and operators
  • Negligent train operations resulting in injury or death, such as derailments, collisions with other trains, or other train wrecks, involving:
    • Train passengers
    • Train crew members and railroad workers
    • Guests and passengers
    • Pedestrians
    • Train contractors and repairmen
    • Rail yard workers
