Pedestrian / Train Accident Attorney

Pedestrian/Train Accident Attorney

When a pedestrian is hit by a train, catastrophic injury or death usually is the result. Railroad companies are quick to blame the victim and take the position that people should just stay away from railroad tracks. When trains hit pedestrians, railroads almost always dismiss the tragedy as a case of careless trespassing or pedestrian suicide.

While careless trespassing and railroad track suicide do occur, they certainly are not the only causes of train / pedestrian accidents. Contrary to what railroad companies would have people believe, railroads often are at fault for pedestrian accidents in which trains hit people.
