Damages available to train accident victims

The high capacity of trains put more people at risk during an accident. Most of these kinds of vehicles don’t have restraint systems at every seat, so passengers are jarred and thrown during an accident. Injuries include head and back damage from falls and possible fractures. If you were involved in a train derailment or collision, an attorney can help you get compensation for:

Medical Bills

Your initial treatments for any injuries suffered can be costly, and the rail company should cover them.

Home Healthcare Costs

Even after a railway incident, you may have chronic discomfort or late-onset symptoms from the event.

Medical Monitoring

Your symptoms may require continuing attention or testing from a healthcare professional.

Property Damage

If your car or other personal property was damaged during a train accident, you may need assistance getting it repaired or replaced.

Types of train accidents in San Luis Obispo and Fresno Counties

There are several different ways a train can get into an accident, with varying results and damage:

  • Derailment — A train going too fast or carrying an unwieldy load can come off its tracks, and once it does, it’s easy for the train to fall over or collide with something.
  • Collision with train — When two trains collide, the shock is powerful, even if they are moving slowly in a station.
  • Collision with a vehicle — A car on the railroad tracks or too close to the side of tracks will take a lot of damage from a train, but it can also stop or derail the train.
  • Collision with pedestrian — A collision with a pedestrian isn’t enough to stop a train, but such accidents are usually fatal and often involve a hard brake to try and stop before the person is hit.

Sara Phoekiti

"I was in a car accident last January and started receiving medical bills from the hospital shortly after that. I contacted Steve’s office and immediately he and his staff went to work on my behalf. He explained to me how the process would work and kept me in the loop every step of the way."

Tawnia Burns

"I can’t recommend Steve and his law firm enough. I felt extremely comfortable with the way he handled my case, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the compensation he recovered from me. Getting into a car accident is never fun… but feeling screwed by insurance is even worse. Do yourself a favor and call the personal injuries at Steven P. Roberts!"
