Complex Train Accident Cases

In many ways, train accident cases are more difficult to handle than other accident cases. At The Reardon Law Firm, P.C. we have extensive experience and knowledge regarding complications that arise in railroad crossing accident litigation:

  • Causation: Old, faulty equipment, track defects and operator error are common causes of train accidents. Due to the catastrophic nature of most railroad crossing accidents, however, it is difficult to uncover evidence of these factors and witnesses who can give accurate accounts.
  • Insurance companies: Insurance companies often have more to lose in railroad accident cases than in other accident cases, which means they fight railroad claims even more aggressively. We refuse to let our clients lose their right to full compensation.
  • Complex laws: Our attorneys are well versed in the complex federal and state laws regulating railroad safety. We will search for any violations of these regulations to help establish negligence and causation.

Each of our cases is taken on a contingency fee basis, and we are paid only upon a successful outcome. To speak with a Connecticut train accident litigation attorney, call or e-mail the firm for an initial consultation.
