Many individuals throughout New York rely on trains to get around. Whether it is the subway, commuter trains, such as Amtrak, or other trains, they are an extremely common and efficient mode of transportation. However, it is possible for accidents to occur with these trains, leaving passengers severely and often fatally injured. If you or a loved one has been injured in a train accident, you should have an attorney on your side who can fight for your rights.

Train Accident Victim Rights in NY
Derailments, train collisions and other train accidents often are the result of operator negligence. Our Albany, NY-based law firm can investigate the case and work to determine what the root cause of the accident was. Once the cause of the accident can be determined, we can file suit against any and all negligent parties that contributed to the injuries you have suffered, including:
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Closed head injuries
- Broken bones
- Lacerations and abrasions
- Train Track and Train Crossing Injuries
When train crossings are not properly marked or secured, devastating accidents can occur. Trains are moving at an extremely high rate of speed and if they collide with a vehicle that is on the tracks due the lack of proper signage, lights, security arms and other safety measures, individuals can be instantly killed. Our firm handles all types of train track and train crossing accidents that have resulted in severe injuries and death.
