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.

Attorney Jason Saltzman and his assistant Kris Brown did an exceptional job working my case. From beginning to end they were very caring about my injuries and concerns. They responded to all my calls, text and emails in a timely fashion and never seem to have an issue with all my questions, and I had many. Because of their obvious honesty, I decided that I could trust them to handle my business and decided to utilize patience. Although there were times that I wondered what was going on, was convinced that they had my best interest in mind. Kris made sure that she requested any and all documents and information they needed and followed up with me if needed. I would recommend this team at Motlick and Associates to anyone who may find themself in a situation like mine and have to endure the pain, suffering and injuries that I endured. At the end of the day I believe they did the best they could on my behalf. Although I am still experiencing the after effects of my surgery. I fell a since of relief from the outcome my team was able to achieve. Thank you Attorney Saltzman and Kris Brown.

I had the pleasure of working with Ellen Forrester when I tell you she fought tooth and nail for me she did just that! The insurance company was not willing to pay a dime for my injuries but Ms. Forrester was not only persistent and knowledgeable she was on top of her game. Thanks to her and her team I was able to win my case.

On Oct 30, 2022, I was in a Hit and Run Accident in Lagrange GA. by a non-insured motorist, Not naming the 3 previous law firms that totally almost ruined my chances in getting things doing and helping me through my nightmare. a year head almost went by feeling like i was the perpetrator and not the victim of a hit and run. I never been in any car accident of this multitude. I was so lost, had not guidance of what to do and how to do it right. Never even got to talk to any of the previous attorneys that claim they help people after a car accident. I had sunk into deep depression. As a retired Veteran that suffer from PTSD and Paranoia when i had to drive, I was so scared and afraid to the point I had other drivers around me wondering if i was a safe driver. until one night i was watch TV after praying to God to please send me an Angle to help me that's when Montlick & Associates commercial came on it was. I set up in my bed and knew if I wanted real help and be able to talk with an Attorney on my case and not some injury firm Secretary. I need to call right away cause time head already been wasted, fighting with the last three injury law firms. Mrs. Neives was my Angle along with everyone at Montlick I felt like not only did I have an Attorney but i also had an after Accident Mental Therapist she insured me that she would get everything back on the right track. and rewrite all the wrongs and make them right. not one time did i every had to call for any updates. if there was anything she needed answers to I was contact by her or someone on her team by email or phone call. the Only thing i regrate is not calling Monlick & Associates when the Hit and Run first Accrued from the Hospital. my story goes out to everyone who may find themselves in the same situation. Yes, there is a lot of an injury law firms out there but I will bet my bottom dollar that you will not talk to nor know who your attorney is and be kept updated about your cause if you're not a client of Montlick & Associates. I thank my Heavenly Father for everyone at Montlick & Associates

My first experience with Montlick I have no complaints. My lawyer Nick stayed on top of everything with the best advice, keeping in touch with me via text, email or phone call even if it was just checking on me to see how I was doing. He thoroughly explained everything to me and left no questions unanswered. I would definitely recommend montlick to my family and friends anyday. Thanks again Nick for all your hard work with my case.

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.
