        AMAZING! I highly recommend this group. We had quite an unusual case, this group was our only glimmer of hope when our options were limited and no one would accept a complicated case. We worked closely with Colin O’Malley and his team. Words cannot do justice to how wonderful they are; highly competent, professional, very responsive, thorough and friendly. Colin went above and beyond to make himself available and to answer all our questions and concerns. If you need an excellent proficient injury lawyer that would fight for you, look no further!

        Causes of Train Accidents

        It often helps to know that your attorney has handled many cases successfully before. We have many years of experience handling cases like yours and we want to give you the same justice that we have brought many others before you. One of our first tasks when taking a case is to understand why it happened. We have looked at many cases and determined that these are some of the most common reasons why railroad accidents happen:

        • The maintenance on the train was lacking
        • There was a violation when inspecting the train
        • The operator of the train was speeding or recklessly operating the train
        • There was an error made by the train operator
        • The floors or platforms were greasy or oily
        • Someone tripped and fell

        Because of a lack of safety measures taken and violations of regulations, people can be seriously or permanently injured. Sometimes, these accidents can result in death. It is the train company’s obligations to meet a standard of care and if they fail to do so, then they are responsible for any harm that their negligence and carelessness has caused. Our Naperville railroad accident attorneys will hold the liable party accountable for the damages that they have caused on behalf of you and our other clients.

        Federal Employers Liability Act

        Being a worker for a railroad company can be a very hard and laborious job, but it can also be extremely dangerous. We see far too many people suffer serious and permanent damages and injuries because of their job doing repetitive tasks or being exposed to dangerous chemicals.

        Oftentimes, when employees are hurt at work, they can seek workers’ compensation. Workers who are employed by railroad companies can be covered by the Federal Employers Liability Act, or FELA, which was passed in 1908. This law allows railroad company workers who have been hurt on the job to sue their employer for damages. This can include their pain and suffering, as well as compensation for medical costs.

        We handle cases involving FELA claims and we want to hear from you as soon as possible if you’ve suffered an injury at a railroad job.

        Railroad Accident Injuries 

        Working on a railroad can be an extremely dangerous job as you very well know. Suffering a catastrophic injury is a common occurrence in the clients that we have represented. These accidents can happen if machines malfunction or there has been a collision, explosion, or a fall. The injuries that you might suffer from a catastrophic accident can be traumatic brain injuries, scarring and disfigurement, having a limb amputated, broken bones, deep puncture wounds and more.

        Other types of injuries that we see clients get can be from repetition or stress to the body over a long course of time. We see injuries such as arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as back injuries, joint injuries or hearing loss.

        We have also handled cases in which our clients have been exposed to toxic chemicals that has resulted in brain damage, cancers of the lung or reproductive system, heart disease, asbestos poisoning and more.

        If you or a loved one have suffered harm because of your job working for the railroad company, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Naperville railroad accident attorneys today.

        Common Carrier Laws

        Vehicles such as trains, buses, and trams are considered common carrier vehicles, and they are meant to transport passengers and or goods and are paid to do so. These common carriers have to follow laws pertaining only to them. Generally speaking, common carriers have a higher standard of care to people on board than a non-commercial vehicle might have. Some of the regulations and standards included could be standards for an inspection or a repair, as well as safety hazard checks and training for employees and train operators. All of these steps have to be taken in order to provide safe transit for their passengers.

        We have represented many cases in which common carrier companies have not met the standard of care that they owe their passengers. These accidents can cause serious and permanent damage to victims such as TBI, head neck or back injury, burns and bruises, fractures or broken bones and more. Anyone who is injured on a common carrier can file a claim against the train company to try to get justice for the damages that they have suffered.

        Our Naperville railroad accident attorneys have many years’ experience handling these types of claims and we have the knowledge base needed to navigate any obstacles when trying to get you the justice that you deserve. When you hire our attorneys, we take care of everything for you so you can focus on getting better. We understand that you might be suffering physically and mentally and you need to focus on that rather than the inner workings of a lawsuit.

        We Fight For Your Justice

        You may be intimidated by the idea of having to go up against the insurance company of a major railroad corporation company. While this might seem like something that you are unprepared for, please understand that we are on your side. Even though the insurance companies do not want to give fair payouts because it can be expensive for them, we will always fight for what you deserve.

        Our Naperville railroad accident attorneys have handled many cases like yours successfully. We have recovered compensational awards for many clients before you and we want to bring you that same success.

        We hope that you reach out to us right away to get started building your case for a free initial consultation.

        Eligibility for a Claim

        If you are looking to file a FELA lawsuit, you are likely wondering whether or not you are eligible to do so. In order to file this claim, you have to have been employed at a railroad company and have been hurt while working. Also, we need to be able to show that the railroad company is guilty of negligence or carelessness and is directly responsible for the events leading up to your injuries.

        When we file the claim, you might be wondering how much compensation you are going to get for your injuries. Please understand that this is a case by case thing and the amount of compensation you receive is based entirely on circumstances such as the expenses and bills that you have had to pay for your medical recovery, wages you have lost from missing time at work to heal, as well as your pain and suffering.

        Railroad Accident Claim Trials

        There are some cases that will end up in trial, but more often than not a railroad accident case is going to be settled before it goes to court. We work with the insurance companies to try to win you a settlement that is full and fair, but sometimes they won’t come to us with an option that is right, so we prepare to go to trial. Sometimes, they will offer a fair settlement as soon as we are on the courthouse steps to avoid going to trial because it can be expensive for them. Regardless, we are going to build your case from the very beginning as if it is going to trial so that we are not ever left surprised by their inaction to bring you justice. We will always be ready for the challenges and obstacles that come with a railroad accident case.
