Why Do Train Accidents Occur?
Keeping a train in proper working order requires a lot of work, maintenance, supervision and diligence. Unfortunately, not all railway companies and their employees take proper care in performing their job duties. This can result in Los Angeles trains that are unfit for passengers and cause dangerous or even deadly accidents. If you’ve lost a loved one due to such negligence, we understand the profound impact it can have on your life. Your well-being matters, and our Los Angeles wrongful death attorneys are here to fight for justice on your behalf.
Common causes of train accidents include:
- Train derailment
- Railway company negligence
- Government agency fault
- Operator or conductor error
- Conductor intoxication
- Poor communication
- Equipment malfunction
- Part defects
- Mechanical failure
- Undetected train damage
- Overloaded or improperly secured freight
- Defective or damaged tracks
- Fires from combustion motors
- Automobile driver error
Whether the train you were on derailed or a motor vehicle driver struck the train, you may be entitled to compensation as an injured accident victim. If someone else was negligent, or failed to exercise reasonable care, and this caused the train accident, that person or party may be financially responsible for your losses.
Compensation Available for Train Accident Victims
At The Liberatore Law Firm, we believe you should not be responsible for covering the costs of your injuries if someone else is to blame for the train accident. We can help you pursue the financial compensation you deserve for both economic and noneconomic damages.
Available compensation may include:
- Past and future medical costs
- Lost wages and future earning capacity
- Property or vehicle damage
- Long-term disability
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional injuries
- Loss of consortium
- Wrongful death damages, if applicable
Our train accident attorneys can use aggressive legal strategies to seek enough compensation to allow you to recover from a harmful train incident without financial worry. We are proud to have an over 95 percent case success rate.
