Los Angeles Railroad and Train Accident Lawyer
Protect Your Legal Rights with an Experienced Railroad and Train Accident
Lawyer From The Doan Law Firm
The number of accidents and injuries associated with railroads in the United
States is surprisingly high. The national media tends to report on only
the more sensational train wrecks, accidents that result in multiple casualties
and a long list of injured passengers.
The stark, disturbing reality is that about every three hours in the United
States, a pedestrian or automobile is hit by a train, according to the
Federal Railroad Administration. While some of these incidents occur because
of a pedestrian or car driver's negligence, a considerable percentage
of these accidents are the result of some type of negligence on the part
of the train operator, company, or other responsible third party.
In addition to major accidents and collisions, thousands of railroad passengers
sustain other types of injuries while on trains each and every year. These
include everything from injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents
to those caused by inappropriately abrupt stops of a moving train.
Compensation in a California Train Accident Personal Injury Case
If you have been injured in a California train accident case, your life
literally may feel as if it has been turned completely upside down. You
likely are facing significant pain and suffering. You may be involved
in ongoing medical care, treatment, and therapy, with no definite end
in sight. You may not have been able to return to work.
A key strategy to ensure that you obtain justice in your case is to be
proactive in retaining the professional services of an experienced, committed,
compassionate Los Angeles train and accident lawyer. The legal team at
The Doan Law Firm includes attorneys with experience in representing people
injured in train accidents throughout the state of California. An attorney
at our firm can be reached by calling our 24-hour hotline at (424) 334-0000.
The types of financial recovery available in a train accident case depends
on the specific facts and circumstances surrounding the accident and your
injuries. Common types of compensable losses include:
• medical bills and expenses
• pain and suffering
• mental anguish
• lost wages
• permanent injury
• permanent disfigurement
• property damage
A skilled train accident attorney will fight to ensure that you obtain
compensation not only for your existing or current losses, but those you
reasonably can expect to incur into the future. In addition, if your case
ends up in a lawsuit, a railroad accident lawyer may be able to pursue
what are known as punitive damages on your behalf. Punitive damages represent
additional compensation when the party that caused the accident was particularly reckless.
Compensation in a California Train Accident Wrongful Death Case
The compensation potentially available to you in a California train accident
wrongful death case depends not only on the facts and circumstances at

awarded in a settlement or judgment in a train accident wrongful death
case. These include:
• loss of companionship
• loss of consortium
• mental grief and anguish
• lost support and income
• last medical bills and expenses
• funeral and burial costs
