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.

Thank you, Montlick and associates, for taking my case. Special thanks to Scott Paterson and his secretary Sarah for your patience and always encouraging when me it got tough. You put in all your effort to make sure I was compensated. I wish I could give you 100 stars. God bless you all, and thank you.

Montlick and Associates at Executive Park in Atlanta, Ga have been the most professional and customer service oriented firm I've had the pleasure of working with despite the circumstance I was in. They were able to assist me with 1 case successfully in December 2019.I recently needed additional assistance in October 2023 for a 2nd case. This time Montlick and Associtates could not directly assist me due to the nature of my request, but they were able to point me into the right direction on where I can receive attorney services.That was such a huge relief! Thank you to Nick Vocino and his office and team!

I couldn’t have chosen a better law firm to handle the case of my accident which was not my fault! Jason Saltzman was my attorney and he was amazing and he didn’t leave any stones unturned! He worked for the absolute most for me and got me the care I needed ! And Esmeralda, his senior legal assistant, was always there when I had questions and would always email me back very quickly if I had questions and she and Jason really put my mind at ease while going through all of this ! He got me the maximum of what I deserved and worked hard on my case! I’d give them 100 stars if I could because they are the best! I’d recommend them anytime any day for anyone who needs an attorney who cares and one that will answer you no matter what and answer any questions that you may have ! Thank you so much Jason and Esmeralda !!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Amber and Nick have been an outstanding team. They guided me through the legal process after my accident and always kept me up-to-date with progress on my case. Amber was always available to answer any questions, and was so polite and professional. Both Nick and Amber really did an amazing job of making me feel like I was their priority. Thanks so much to both of you!

Although the circumstances that led me to Montlick and Associates were not pleasant, this firm was a joy to work with. Nick Vocino and his team, especially "Amber Starks: ("AmberfromMrVocinosoffice"). They were very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional at all times. They paid close attention to items that I thought were "little things" and answered all of my concerns. They made my family feel important and treated us as such. Thank you for your hard work. I would certainly recommend this firm to others, especially my family and friends.

Getting into a car accident is traumatic but, having Orlando Mara and Micheal Boyd handle my uninsured motorist case reduced my stress levels by a lot. They kept me up to date the entire time and very considerate of the outcome and settlement! I HOPE I never get into an accident again but if I do, I know who to call! Thank you all!

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.

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.

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.
