Passengers And Workers Are Entitled To Relief After Derailment Accidents

Derailments do not happen often, but when they do, the injuries are extremely serious. Whether you are an injured railroad worker or a victim of a derailment accident, you cannot fight the railroad company alone. The railroad will use its financial and legal resources to deny your claim.

At James F. Humphreys & Associates, L.C., we represent injured railroad workers in claims involving the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA). You can rely on our personal injury and FELA experience.

Representing Workers, Passengers And Bystanders

Derailment accidents can be caused by error or negligence committed by the railroad or by a third party. Some common causes of derailments include:

  • Railroad crew negligence
  • Distracted or sleeping conductor
  • Train going too fast over a bad part of track
  • Collision with another train or vehicle

We will investigate the accident to determine who is liable for your injuries and hold those parties accountable.

Victims of derailments often suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries such as:

The losses from these injuries will be significant. Injury victims and their families will need compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and, in wrongful death cases, funeral expenses. We aggressively pursue full and fair damages for your losses.
