Common Causes of Indiana Railroad Crossing Accidents
Recent statistics show that a train strikes a vehicle or pedestrian every three minutes in the United States. In many cases, Indiana railroad crossing accidents are the result of preventable factors, including:
- Crossing signal failures
- Lack of traffic controls or gates
- Failure to sound horns while approaching crossings
- Obstructed views at crossings
Our legal team can conduct a thorough investigation of your claim so the parties responsible for your accident can be held accountable. Contact us online to get started now.
Helping Injured Rail Workers in Indiana
Federal law requires railroad companies to provide employees with a safe work environment. If you’re a railroad worker who was injured on the job, the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) allows you to seek compensation for your:
- Medical bills and future treatment
- Wage loss and future loss of earnings
- Pain, suffering, and emotional distress
Under FELA, families of railroad workers who die in work-related accidents may also be eligible for compensation. Our Indiana train accident lawyers know the dangers that come with railroad work, and we’ll fight hard to ensure you get the best possible results for your claim.
