Pursuing Compensation for Your Train Accident Injuries

It is difficult to prove your case on your own. However, by working with an attorney experienced in handling the intricacies of liability in train accident cases, you will gain a partner and an advocate. Our personal injury lawyers are trained, skilled, and well-positioned to gather, analyze, and present the strongest evidence in support of your case. By collecting evidence, you can show a judge or jury that you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. Your personal injury lawyer will gather, analyze, and present the evidence in support of your case to ensure you have the strongest case possible. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we will collect evidence in some combination of the following:

  • Your medical records
  • Photographs of your injuries
  • Photographs of the accident scene
  • Your financial records, from pay stubs to tax returns
  • Receipts from any medical expenses you incurred, including travel expenses for your medical care, vehicle modifications made necessary by your injuries, and any home renovations that made your home more accessible post-injury

Additionally, your attorney might use depositions of expert witnesses to counter disputes from the defendant’s insurance company. For instance, the deposition of a medical expert may verify your healthcare costs, and the deposition of an economist may prove the value of your reduced future earning capacity. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we work with dozens of well-credentialed experts who can provide credible deposition testimony in train accident cases. We will know the kinds of experts to depose based on the facts of your case and how to get the most value out of their time and testimony.
