With Indiana's rich manufacturing history and Indianapolis serving as the Crossroads of America, thousands of miles of railroad tracks cover our beautiful state. With so many prevalent railroads crisscrossing the state, train accidents unfortunately occur. In 2014, 20 people died in train accidents in Indiana, making the state the fifth deadliest for train accidents.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a train accident, Tabor Law Firm in Indianapolis has the resources to investigate and gather evidence from the scene of a train accident. We can help with all types of train accidents, including:
- Collisions with other trains
- Collisions with passenger vehicles
- Pedestrian accidents
- Injuries while boarding or departing a train
- Fire and explosions
- Toxic spills
You Need An Attorney's Help For These Complex Cases
The railroad companies have obtained a lot of federal protection and immunity for certain types of crossings. And many times, investigators for the railroad are the first to arrive on scene. They have a head start in gathering evidence, including any audio or video on board the train itself.
That means the sooner you talk to an attorney, the better. Our lawyers will start an investigation immediately and preserve evidence already gathered by the railroad company's team of investigators. We will also hire a well-qualified railroad expert to assist us in understanding what happened, why it happened and if it was preventable.
You can make a claim with any person or entity responsible for the collision, including the railroad company, engineer or conductor. We will help you determine who is responsible so you can get the recovery you deserve.
