What is a Train Accident?
A train accident is defined as any accident or collision involving a train. There are many different types of train accidents. The type of train accident that you are facing has everything to do with where you were in relation to the train. Some train accidents involve a head-on collision between two separate trains, while other train accidents are the result of a single train veering off of the tracks and colliding into a landmark. In less common cases, a train accident could result from a train hitting pedestrians or vehicles on a nearby road.
What Should You Do Immediately After a Train Accident?
Medical attention may be required. The most important step to take after being in a train accident is to prioritize your physical safety. If you have sustained any injuries as a direct result of the accident, be sure to contact medical professionals immediately. Even if your body feels intact and nothing specifically hurts, we encourage you to seek an evaluation by a medical team just to be sure you have not sustained any invisible injuries. While many injuries are painful and obvious, others can lie dormant for days after the accident.
Contact a train accident attorney immediately after seeking medical help. Do not speak with any insurance companies before discussing the situation with an experienced train accident lawyer. The reason as to why your first point-of-contact should be an attorney rather than insurance companies is that the latter does not have your best interest in mind, especially when it’s the opposing party’s insurance company. Before you speak with insurance companies or provide them with a statement, contact a lawyer with experience handling train accident cases.
Learn about the statute of limitations for train accidents in your area. It is important to act fast and not delay the filing process of your train accident case. The statute of limitations is essentially a timeline you must work with in order to legally file your case and claim compensation for your injuries. Failing to file a timely lawsuit can result in the dismissal of your lawsuit and you not receiving any compensation for your injuries. Because the statute of limitations can be a complex issue, you should immediately seek legal advice specific to your train accident case regarding the statute of limitations.
Do I have a Train Accident case?
Every case is different, so it’s hard to say if you have a train accident case without knowing all of the details. The only way to determine if you do or do not have a case is to consult with a train accident lawyer. It's important to explore your options and talk to a lawyer as soon as possible to secure your right to sue. Our team of experienced lawyers will inform you of the necessary steps to take when handling a train accident case.
