Train Accidents

San Francisco Train Accident Lawyers

Call Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn – (415) 940-7176

A train in motion represents a massive danger to anyone and anything close by. Crossing warnings and signs are usually posted throughout roadways to warn motorists and pedestrians of nearby train tracks, but these are often not enough to prevent horrific car accidents. According to the Federal Railroad Administration, train accidents cause hundreds of fatalities and thousands of injuries nationwide every year. These figures include derailments and collisions that harm:

  • Railroad employees
  • Motorists at railroad crossings
  • Onboard passengers
  • Nearby pedestrians
  • Customers waiting at the train station

At Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn, we represent clients injured in all types of railroad accidents. This includes helping the public for injuries or deaths caused by trains. Our lawyers represent injured railroad passengers, people injured in railroad crossing accidents, and other victims of negligence in San Francisco. Our clients’ well-being is atop our priority list.

Legal Help for Victims of Train Accidents

When something as large and powerful as a train derails or collides with something or someone, the results are going to be catastrophic. If you are unable to prove that you were not liable for the accident, the results of the damages might be your burden to bear alone.

  • Some harmful outcomes of train accidents include:
  • Painful personal injuries
  • Widespread property damage
  • Steep repair or recovery costs
  • Loss of employment due to disabilities

Representing Railroad Employees & FELA Claims in San Francisco

Our San Francisco train accident attorneys represent railroad employees and their families for injuries or deaths on the job. Typically, railroad employees are not eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Instead, their on-the-job injuries are covered by the Federal Employees Liability Act (FELA). Enacted in 1908, FELA protects the rights of all injured railroad workers, even individuals who do not work in or around a train.

Unlike injured workers covered by no-fault workers’ compensation insurance, injured railroad workers must prove that their employer’s negligence caused their injury. Whether these injured workers work in an office job or a switching station, we can work to help seriously injured railroad workers obtain the full amount of financial compensation they deserve.
