Amtrak Train Accident Lawyers

Amtrak Train Accident Lawyers: Were you or a loved one involved in the recent Amtrak Accidents? Call our Personal Injury Experts Today\

If you or someone close to you has been injured on an Amtrak train, or if someone in your family died as a result of an accident involving an Amtrak train, it may be in your best interest to discuss your the details of the accident with a law firm that has experienced Amtrak train accident lawyers to help people in situations like yours.

Across America, millions of commuters travel for work, pleasure, and family affairs via Amtrak. Amtrak is generally a safe mode of transportation, that is trusted by many Washingtonians– including our own Washington DC Amtrak accident lawyer. However, that trust can be challenged when people are injured and die because of an Amtrak train accident.

The May 14, 2015 Philadelphia crash is one example of a devastating train accident. In this incident a train derailed while rounding a curve at 106 mph where the speed limit was only 50. This accident killed eight passengers and injured 200 more. The Washington DC- New York Corridor, where Philadelphia sits, is the busiest Amtrak route in all the nation. Amtrak (formally known as the National Railroad Passenger Corporation) is a government-owned corporation that residents and riders of this area expect will ensure that appropriate safety standards are met.

When Amtrak engineers do not obey speed limits and follow safety procedures, and when proper safety mechanisms are not put in place, passengers, crew members, and people near a train’s path can get injured. Speeding related Amtrak accidents are preventable. There are in-place positive control mechanisms that can automatically prevent a train from moving above a set speed. However, not all Amtrak trains are equipped with this technology as of yet. When highly preventable misfortunes like this occur, it is best for injured parties to know their rights. Speaking with the Washington DC injury lawyers of Cohen & Cohen as soon as possible may help you to understand what your rights are and how to protect them.

Fighting for your or a loved one’s rights after a train accident can be especially complex. Amtrak is a government entity, however, an outside party may own the train cars involved in the accident. Usually with public transportation, accident victims are expected to give the government organization adequate time to offer a settlement, before moving forward with a lawsuit whereas if a private party is involved, it may be in your best interest to pursue compensation as soon as you can. The legal stipulations can vary greatly depending on the circumstances of the accident which is why speaking with a qualified Amtrak attorney is the best way to understand one’s legal options.

The attorneys at Cohen & Cohen, have years of experience assisting the victims of public transportation accidents. Our Metro and Amtrak train accident lawyers have successfully represented accident victims in both the 2009 Metro rail crash, and the 2015 Metro smoke accident. In each case related to these matters, our attorneys have sought the truth: What caused these accidents, and how can we make this railway system safer for future passengers and employees?

With compassion, tenacity, and years of experience, our Washington DC Amtrak attorneys will continue to seek these answers for all injured Amtrak passengers and workers. If you have been injured in an Amtrak-related incident, contact the knowledgeable Amtrak train accident lawyers at Cohen & Cohen, today.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Siri Palm and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
