Who Is Liable for a Train Accident?

There are several different parties who could be at fault for a train accident, including a manufacturer of a part of the train or track, the operator of the train, another railroad worker, a motorist, a passenger, a pedestrian, and so on. B Because there are many potentially negligent parties, it is important to have an experienced train accident lawyer in Ventura investigate your case. Our team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers will pursue all of the evidence available. We will gather as much as we can independently, and we may recommend filing a lawsuit as soon as possible to gain additional evidence that is under the control of other parties. Types of evidence we will gather includes:

  • Photos and video of the accident
  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Depositions of railroad and train company employees
  • Business records of the railroad and/or train company
  • Employment records of the train operator
  • Business records of the train or part manufacturer
  • Expert opinions, such as accident reconstructionists, engineers, railroad and train professionals

Through our independent and thorough investigation, we will identify who was directly at fault for the accident. This will lead us to determining the party responsible for the accident and your injuries or loss. With the liable party identified, we can pursue full and fair compensation for your injuries.
