(813) 254-7119 Railroad Crossing Accidents

Railroad Crossing Accidents Injury Lawyer

While railroad crossing accidents are rare in comparison to other types of vehicle accidents, they do occur. Railroad companies must operate under strict federal regulations for safety, especially when crossing roadways. In addition, the city, county and state transportation agencies are responsible for roadways that have railroad crossings. When a railroad crossing accident occurs and causes injuries or fatalities, these events must be carefully investigated to determine liability.

Were You Injured or Lost a Loved One in a Railroad Crossing Accident?

In many cases, railroad accidents with vehicles occur due to drivers not yielding to a marked crossing. Railroad crossings must be marked, and some have gates or lights to warn drivers, pedestrians and others crossing the tracks. However, the majority of fatal or serious injury accidents occur at “passive” railroad crossings that are marked but not protected by gates or lights. In some cases, the railroad company, local government or track owner may be liable for injury accidents that occur at railroad crossings.

Hundreds of accidents at railroad crossings happen each year, with the majority at unprotected crossings. Due to the sheer weight and force of a train, many of these accidents cause fatalities or catastrophic injuries. These are complicated accidents to investigate and determine fault. Some factors that could prove negligence include:

  • Visibility at the crossing
  • Intersections near the crossing
  • Visibility of warning signs
  • Previous accidents at the crossing
  • Adherence to federal regulations

Due to the federal, state and local government involvement in railroad safety, as well as the various entities that may be liable, railroad crossing accidents are very complex.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
