COVID-19 UPDATE 

Pursuant to the Stay at Home Order signed Tuesday, March 24, 2020 by the County Judge of Tarrant County, our office has made more changes.  Our doors are locked, but we are working hard from our respective homes.  Our firm has cutting edge technology, utilizing the Cloud for our document storage, database and computing.  We are also paperless, so that we all have access to all the documents for each file.  In addition, our new phones are high tech so we can do everything from home that we could at the office.  I doubt that our clients will notice any difference in our great client service.  The only thing we cannot do is meet in person with our clients as long as the Order is in effect. 

We will continue expediting our claims and when we make a recovery approved by our client we will continue to expedite the disbursement process.  We are all available by phone, email and Zoom video conferencing. 

As long as the doctors’ offices remain open our clients can get the treatment they need.  As long as the insurance adjusters work from home, we can still make our demands and negotiate settlements. 

For our cases in litigation, there may be some delay in hearings and trials, but that is beyond our control.  However, we are trying to make it possible to do depositions, mediations, etc. 

We hope this Shelter In Place Order ends soon; however, our firm will continue to provide the absolute best legal services possible.

Stay Safe!

Common Causes of Train Accidents

Train accidents typically involve collisions and derailments and can injure pedestrians, passengers, railroad employees, and passengers in nearby automobiles. Some of the most common reasons for these accidents include:

  • Defective equipment
  • Mechanical failure
  • Obstructions on the railroad tracks
  • Excess cargo
  • Defective tracks
  • Negligent train operator
  • Improper or insufficient training for railroad employees
  • Drivers in nearby cars using poor judgment when crossing the tracks
Victims involved in a train accident are highly advised to seek counsel from an injury law attorney who can effectively recover losses.

Establishing Liability for Train Accidents

Accidents involving a train are  complex. Any claim that is filed usually involves the state government, the federal government, or both. Because railroad companies must adhere to strict regulations, most are thoroughly protected by defense lawyers and insurance carriers. Victims involved in a train accident are highly advised to seek counsel from a personal injury law attorney who can effectively recover losses. At-fault parties involved in a train accident could include:

  • The train company
  • Manufacturing companies
  • The train conductor
  • Federal or state government agencies
A blurry train speeds by.
The repercussions of train accidents can be devastating. Our attorneys are prepared to uphold your rights.

What to Do if You are the Victim of a Train Accident

Unlike accidents involving automobiles, boats, or other vehicles, train accidents are often highly publicized. For this reason, most victims receive the medical assistance they need rather quickly. It is important to do so, for the sake of your health and your case. Other steps should be taken to protect yourself and assist in your claim. We recommend that you:

  • Preserve Evidence: Oftentimes, investigators at the scene of a train accident will have the railroad’s best interest at heart. Therefore, it is important to take note of as much detail as you can, taking photos if possible.
  • Avoid Discussion about the Accident: So that you are not wrongfully held accountable, it is important that you do not discuss the details of the accident with anyone until you have met with an attorney.
  • Notify Insurance Companies: If your vehicle was involved in the accident, be sure to alert your insurance company right away.
  • Hire an Injury Law Attorney: So that you do not have to face this dire situation alone, hire an attorney to fight for you. Choosing a firm that is specializes in personal injury law will give you a tremendous advantage.
