Train Accident Lawyers
Located in Silicon Valley, San Jose is a major city with millions of people who commute from all over the Bay Area to work. People think that traveling by train is extremely safe and risk free. However, train accidents are more common than you would think; some are severe, and many are minor. However, there are plenty of accidents causing injuries involving trains in San Jose. There are many times a car gets stuck on the train tracks, or a train engineer gets distracted and there is an operation fail. Train equipment fails and causes trains to collide or derail at the train stations as well. Our train accident lawyers have represented a number of train accident victims who have suffered minor to major injuries and successfully received compensation for their injuries.
Injuries from Train Accidents:
Train accident injuries tend to be severe. For those people or vehicles that are stuck in the pathway of a train on the railroad tracks, are at great risk for serious injury. There are certain locations where the trains collided with vehicles that are at a stop light. For instance, the motorist thought they could make the green light and get stuck right in the middle of the tracks. Passengers on the train are at great risk for injury in derailment circumstances. There aren’t any required seatbelts on trains. The people outside of the train are also at great risk of injury because trains will destroy everything in its path.
What to do after a Train Accident:
- Seek proper medical treatment as soon as possible
- Retain a police report: document the facts of the accident
- Do not leave the accident scene without the proper contact information
- Do not discuss your injuries with anyone but your doctor or the police to preserve the evidence
- Call or contact a train accident lawyer at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers
Why Hire a San Jose Train Accident Attorney?
Hiring a personal injury attorney for your accident may seem scary, however, our train accident lawyers are on your side. The train’s insurance company will likely try to diminish the value of your claim if you are not legally represented. Train companies and their insurance companies have a different agenda when analyzing a train accident. They will send their investigators to the scene to find any reason to blame the accident on another party. Keep your evidence safe and contact a skilled train accident attorney to financial compensation for the injuries you’ve incurred.
