According to the Federal Railroad Administration, in the calendar year of 2014 alone there were 2,287 train-motor vehicle collisions, resulting in 269 fatalities and 849 injuries.
Determining whether those injured or killed in a railroad crossing accident have a valid claim involves a complex analysis of numerous facts regarding the potential legal liability of the railroad company operating the train at the time of the collision, the liability of the railroad that owns the track where the collision occurred, and potential liability of the local county or city where the collision occurred, since rail crossings are governed by both federal and state rules and regulations regarding rail grades, line of sight near the crossing, and other issues. The presence of product liability is also a factor with this rail-crossing equipment.
If you or a family member has suffered injury as a result of a railroad crossing collision, or been injured as a railroad worker, contact our office to determine whether we can assist you in a claim against those who may be legally liable for those injuries.

My husband and I highly recommend Bob Gregory. He represented us in two cases.. one was a nursing home case and the other was a vehicle accident.
Bob went to great lengths to get information needed for both cases in a relatively short period of time. He kept us informed of all his findings. He showed us great empathy due to our losses. He was very easy to talk to and made us feel comfortable. Glad that he was referred to us by a friend.
