Railroad Crossing Accidents


Missouri Attorneys Representing Railroad Crossing Accident Victims

If you or a loved one has been injured in a railroad crossing accident, contact an attorney at Devereaux, Stokes, Fernandez & Leonard, P.C. immediately. Amtrak, Metrolink and light rail train crashes are often catastrophic or fatal. There can be many causes for these types of accidents. The passengers are obviously not at fault and it is important for us to get involved right away to determine what caused the accident. The sooner we are involved the better we are able to preserve evidence that may prove pivotal in your case.

For more information on railroad crossing accidents, visit the Federal Railroad Administration website.

We will investigate the following factors:

  • Did the railroad crossing have lights, a gate, both or neither (uncontrolled railroad crossing)?
  • Was there some design defect, flaw or malfunction in the crossing itself?
  • Did other vehicles contribute to the train – car crash — for example, by tailgating or blocking the view of the driver of the car that went onto the railroad tracks at the wrong moment?
  • Was there any special environmental problem such as blinding sunlight or untrimmed tree branches blocking the crossbuck sign?

These questions are only a few examples of issues we will investigate. Learning as much as we can about the brain injury, spinal cord injury or other serious injury is also a key component of a successful railroad crossing accident case.

We welcome the opportunity to listen to your story and provide a preliminary case analysis at no charge, with no obligation. We are willing and glad to visit you in the hospital if that is most convenient — with no obligation to hire our law firm. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
