Train Crash Accident & Injury Attorneys

We Don’t Settle for Less. Neither Should You.

After suffering an injury or losing a loved one in a train accident, it can be hard to know where to turn for help.

Train accident cases can be some of the most difficult we see. Victims often have extensive medical bills, lost income, disability, pain and suffering, and other damages. In the tragic cases where the victims die from their train accident injuries, family members are left behind to try to pick up the pieces.

When the negligent actions of others cause horrific train accidents, Montlick fights fiercely for accountability from the wrongdoers and pursues the compensation our clients deserve.

When I was involved in a Automobile accident, my wife said you have to called Montlick & Associates. That was the best called I have ever made. Attorney Jason took my case and he did an exceptional Job from start to finish. He kept me informed throughout the process. Thanks Montlick & Associates for providing excellent service.
I had the pleasure of working with Attorney Scott Patterson who truly went above and beyond for my case. He's so amazing! His expertise and dedication were evident throughout the process, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thanks to the hard work and patience put into my case. I received a fantastic and fair settlement that exceeded my expectations. Furthermore, his assistant, Sarah Duncan, played an integral role in the success of my case. Her professionalism and support were outstanding. She consistently demonstrated a genuine concern for my needs and was always there to provide assistance whenever I needed it.Overall, I am incredibly grateful for the outstanding service provided by Attorney Scott Patterson and team. I wholeheartedly recommend Montlick & Associates law firm to anyone in need of legal representation. Thank you so much!
Michael Moran and his team took good care of me. They kept me in the loop of everything that was going on. All I did was do what they wanted me to do and kept them updated. I’m very satisfied with the outcome of my settlement. Thanks.

From day one to the end, I was kept informed about the status of my case. They answered all my questions I had and never made me feel that I was bothering them. I am very satisfied with the end result of my case and will recommend them to others. Thank you Attorney Jennifer and your Assistant Rachel for making me feel right at home as a part of the family. The Lord bless you both and your families in Jesus name Amen.

On November 30, 2022 I experienced the worst injury that I have ever experienced at fault not my own, while on a quick out of town trip. Not only was I severely burned at an establishment, but I was denied representation by several firms where my incident happened. Unbeknownst to me just because an incident happens in a certain state doesn't mean you have to obtain representation there, which is how I had a turn around in defeat. Not only did Montlick & Associates instantly take my case, Ellen Forrester provided candor from the start on the pros, cons, and how she could deliver her services with the goal of fighting for me as her client being one that was truly heartfelt. From constant check ins from Dayna Clark (Ellen's Senior Legal Assistant), to pertinent information delivered directly from Ellen, I felt the utmost service with care was provided. Ellen was diligent in getting the best results no matter the fight. In the end I had a successful outcome and hopefully raised enough awareness for an incident this traumatic not to happen to anyone else. I Thank Ellen & Dayna for all their hard work and would recommend more stars if I could based on their client care alone.

I'm a first time patron of Montlick and Associates and didn't really know what the process would be. Thankfully, my case was appointed to Mr. Liu and I knew from the initial conversation that I would be in good hands. Every question I had was answered and every worry was quickly swept away. Thank you, Mr. Liu!

Demarcus Cousin
I am so happy with the results that Jason got for my case. All other practices wouldn't take my case but not Jason. He knew I had a bad fall and injury. He and Esmerelda worked so hard and informed me of every detail immediately. I highly recommend their services. If I ever need an accident attorney, I will not hesitate to call Jason. Thank you and I hope you enjoyed the goodies I baked for you. I will forever be grateful for the settlement you got for me.

Train accidents can involve numerous factors and range in severity. Sometimes, the accident involves only one train and injures passengers on board or people surrounding the train. In other crashes, multiple vehicles are involved in addition to the train passengers, rail cars tumble onto roadways, or cars spill hazardous materials near neighborhoods.

In any instance, due to the sheer size of the train cars, the injuries to those on board or otherwise involved can be severe or even fatal.

The most common types of train accidents include:

  • Collisions between trains
  • Collisions between trains and other vehicles at crossings
  • Trains striking pedestrians at crossings or along rail tracks
  • Derailments, which can also involve accidents with other vehicles and/or spills.

Serious Accidents with Serious Injuries

Because of the scale of train accidents, they can easily lead to extremely serious injuries, or even prove fatal. Broken bones, dislocated joints, injury to internal organs or internal bleeding, head and brain trauma, spinal cord injury and paralysis are not uncommon in these situations.

Depending on the circumstances of the crash, significant burn injuries can also occur.

While all these injuries can range in severity, one common factor that train accident victims experience is overwhelming medical bills that threaten to consume their financial future. That’s where we come in.

Legal Time Deadlines You Should Know

It’s important to recognize that after a train crash injury, the clock starts ticking on the amount of time you have to file a claim. This is known as the “statute of limitations” and varies widely depending on the circumstances of the case and the state laws that apply. Additionally, these time deadlines can vary based on several other factors that can shorten or lengthen the amount of time you have to bring a claim.

For example, claims against governmental entities, can have much shorter deadlines. In some cases, a combination of different types of legal claims may exist that involve different time frames, which may be due to multiple defendants and/or even the laws of more than one jurisdiction.

In train collisions involving automobiles, many insurance policies owned by the victim or the victim’s family, also have timely notification requirements, where if a claim is not filed in time or appropriate notice is not given, the family of the decedent can lose valuable insurance, such as Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage.

In addition to the above legal and contractual deadlines, there are other reasons to act without delay: important evidence necessary for a case can disappear or become destroyed, and witnesses can go missing or forget what happened. Our attorneys act appropriately to preserve important evidence.

Our train accident attorneys can examine the facts and circumstances relevant to your case to determine which statutes of limitations (deadlines) apply. We take the required actions to preserve all-important legal deadlines on behalf of our clients, and when appropriate, make sure important evidence is preserved.

You Are Not Alone

People tend to view train accidents as rare, isolated incidents, but they are actually more common than you might think. According to the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), there were 10,495 accidents or incidents involving trains in the United States in 2019. From these, 881 people were killed. The FRA indicates that derailments led to 1,185 train accidents in 2019, human factors led to 679 accidents, track causes led to 448 accidents, equipment causes led to 236 accidents, and collisions led to 101 accidents.

In 2018, a total of 2,217 accidents occurred in the U.S. involving vehicles and trains, and these accidents resulted in 840 injuries and 262 fatalities. The fatalities usually involve people who are not railroad employees, meaning passengers, motorists, or pedestrians. Crashes between trains and motor vehicles are 20 times more likely to kill motorists than crashes between multiple motor vehicles.

On top of all the injustices your train accident has caused, you shouldn’t have to contend with bills for someone else’s recklessness. There are enough troubles on your mind; let Montlick navigate the legal matrix, so you can focus on moving forward.

What should I do after a train accident?
First, always seek immediate medical attention. Make sure to tell the provider all symptoms or injuries, even if they seem minor in the moment. Often, injuries will worsen over time.

What are common causes of train accidents?
Trains are not able to quickly come to a stop the way that cars can. They need a considerably greater distance and more notice in order to come to a stop. They also cannot make evasive maneuvers in the way cars can. Any issues that arise during a train’s route, therefore, can result major accidents.

Who is responsible in a train and car collision?
The cause or causes of a train accident can dictate the people or entities to be named in a potential lawsuit. Railroad companies, private corporations, and municipalities have a duty to maintain railroad crossings in order to keep drivers safe from collision.
