Brooklyn Train Accident Lawyer

Commuter train wrecks might be rare, but when they occur, catastrophic injuries and damages are typically the result. Get fully compensated for what you’ve been through by working with a Brooklyn train accident lawyer.

Train accidents can be terrifying. As one of millions of people who travel by train, you expect to get to your destination safely. Unfortunately, train accidents do happen, causing serious and often life-changing injuries.

There is no doubt that suffering injuries from a train wreck can cause serious harm, potentially causing catastrophic consequences. Not only are the injuries painful, the physical and emotional trauma can be life-altering, and the financial ramifications can be too much to handle.

Train accidents are usually the result of negligence. Whether you were hurt at the train station, on the platform, or because of a derailment, you may be entitled to compensation from the negligent party. A Brooklyn train accident lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP will examine your case and help you recover a full financial settlement for your injuries.

The Causes of Train Wrecks

Like motor vehicle accidents, train collisions can happen for a variety of reasons. Sudden and without warning, train accidents can result in catastrophic injuries, including amputations, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, and broken bones, among others.

Your Brooklyn train accident lawyer will aggressively negotiate with defendants and their insurance companies on your behalf to get you the maximum compensation you are owed.

Train crashes can be caused by any of the following:

  • Conductor error, often through drowsy operation and excessive speed
  • Distracted operation, such as cell phone use and texting
  • Operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Faulty tracks
  • Malfunctioning railroad gates, lights, and signals
  • Poor train and track maintenance
  • Defective parts or faulty equipment

No Two Train Accidents Are Alike

The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) reports that out of the 3,000 train accidents that occur every year, about 1,000 people die in them. Many commuters in the New York area are injured annually, causing serious and debilitating injuries, sometimes death.

From accidents involving pedestrians to collisions while en route, train wrecks can happen in many different ways. Your injuries may have occurred in one of the following scenarios:

  • Train to train
  • Train to car
  • Railroad crossings
  • Derailment
  • Station platform

Negligent Parties Who Owe You a Settlement

According to the FRA, conductor error is the number one reason train accidents occur. One or more parties may be liable, however. Your Brooklyn train accident lawyer will investigate the wreck to the fullest extent to determine who caused it and why it happened.

Negligent parties may include any of the following:

  • Train transportation company
  • Train engineer or operator and other workers
  • Maintenance company responsible for maintaining train and tracks
  • Manufacturers of defective parts and equipment
  • Train manufacturer

Fighting for Your Compensation

It’s understandable that your train crash has been a difficult experience for you. The never-ending medical bills, the emotional anguish, and the financial turmoil is all devastating. A Brooklyn train accident lawyer from our office can help you get the compensation you deserve from the following losses:

  • Lost wages and future income
  • Medical costs, present and future
