How To Sue Railroads Or Train Operators

If you were involved in a train accident, you’ll need to contact an attorney immediately. If this step is not done in a timely manner, your case may immediately be in jeopardy. If you choose to contact the Doan Law Firm, we can give you the probable timeline and prerequisites for filing suit.

If you’ve sustained an injury as a result of a train accident, get medical attention immediately after the accident in which you were injured and then call an attorney qualified in railroad litigation. You may need to sue for personal injury, pain and suffering, and lost wages, and your case will not proceed without having medical attention immediately after the accident. Should you be injured, and you’re under a doctor’s care, follow the doctor’s advice as quickly and as diligently as possible. If your doctor requests tests or physical therapy, do as he says.

By this time, if you still haven’t done so, it’s critical that you schedule a consultation with a personal injury lawyer. Again, having an attorney with a focus in railroad litigation is of paramount importance in providing you the financial compensation you deserve. The Doan Law Firm, which has a focus in railroad litigation, can assist in determining damages owed you from a railroad-related injury. The Doan Law Firm will get you the maximum compensation you deserve, putting your case at the top of the list. Here at The Doan Law Firm, we know that although accidents don’t wait for daylight hours to happen, railroads are not that quick to act when they are at fault. However, we’re available to answer your phone call any time, day or night, at (800) 349-0000 and can begin the process immediately to get you the relief you deserve.

Be sure when you come into our office that you gather your records and bring every-thing with you. Although our attorneys will give you a detailed list of what you’ll need, some documents include a copy of your insurance policy, photos and perhaps a copy of a police report if you were a motorist. You should also bring medical or financial records as they relate to your case. The Doan Law Firm will need these types of documents to determine the merits of your case.

You’ll not pay anything unless you win your lawsuit. If you win or settle your lawsuit, The Doan Law Firm will charge a percentage of the compensation amount, leaving you free from the costs of the actual court case. Legal disputes with railroads may be resolved prior to court.

Finally, please follow your lawyer’s advice. Should you take action on your own behalf, you could invalidate the entire case. Since lawsuits are often quite adversarial, you will not want to be involved. That’s our job. In addition, the railroad will do anything possible to reduce liability. Any contact will be detrimental. Railroads’ lawyers have the same responsibility to them as your attorney does for you: to represent their client. We will contact the appropriate insurance company or representative to make sure any negotiation moves smoothly. If a settlement is offered, you may choose to accept the offer or continue on to court with the lawsuit.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
