Trains are a convenient way to travel. Instead of fighting with traffic on overcrowded expressways, you can spend your time working, reading or just relaxing. When something goes wrong on a train or at a station, however, the results can be devastating. Train wrecks cause serious personal injuries and fatalities to passengers, railroad employees and others who happen to be near the accident.
In 2015 in the U.S., 11,716 railroad accidents caused 8,962 injuries and 759 fatalities, according to Federal Railroad Administration Office of Safety Analysis. If you were injured or if a member of your family died a wrongful death in a railroad accident, the personal injury attorneys of Drazin and Warshaw, P.C., can help.

Train accidents often involve mechanical failure. Our law firm is well positioned to pursue railroad accident cases because we are experienced in product liability lawsuits. That means we have experience tracking down defects in complicated machinery. Not every law firm has the knowledge and resources required to pursue these challenging cases. We have been doing so for decades and achieving impressive results.
After carefully reviewing the results of official investigations, we conduct our own as well. We work with respected train accident experts to identify exactly what happened in the accident that injured you. Part of our investigation is to identify all possible sources of liability. We then hold these parties responsible for your losses, including pain and suffering, lost wages, lost future earning ability, current and future medical expenses and more.
The Federal Railroad Administration Office of Safety Analysis tracks railroad safety issues. Some of the most common problems that lead to accidents involve:
In addition to representing passengers, passersby, and motorists injured in train wrecks, our workplace accident lawyers file Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) claims on behalf of injured railroad workers.
