The Aftermath of a Railroad Accident
These accidents tend to be high-profile and there's pressure on many different parties to minimize the exposure railroad companies receive before and after fault is determined. If you or a loved one has been hurt, it is recommended that you do not speak with the insurance adjuster. The conversation may be recorded, and your words will be used against you.
It's also advised that you retain an attorney as soon as possible. You have a limited amount of time to pursue your railroad accident case before losing your right forever. Critical evidence and eye witnesses must be identified, located and studied very quickly.
"How Much Is My Claim Worth?"
Because a collision with a train can cause horrific damage and death, the value of these cases is usually very high. Our firm will work diligently to assess all the details of your accident and pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.
Railroad accidents are challenging cases to pursue. To understand the issues in a railroad accident case, scientific and mechanical expertise may be required of the lawyer. As an engineer and a lawyer, T.O. Sanders is uniquely qualified to help you. We litigate railroad accident cases to ensure that our clients are compensated for their loss under the fullest extent of the law.
