Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Train Accident LawyerTrain accidents occur far more often than we realize. While they may not happen as frequently as automobile accidents, when they do happen, the consequences can be fatal. There are thousands of incidents that occur every year, leaving many passengers injuries and some even killed. According to the United States Department of Transportation, in 2016, there were upwards of 740 train fatalities on railroads. The Federal Railroad Administration estimated that in 2015, there were more than two thousands train accidents which resulted in both injuries and fatalities. If you or someone you know has suffered an injury as a result of a train accident, it may be in your best interest to reach out to Cohen & Cohen, a trusted law firm serving Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and surrounding areas, which specializes in train accident cases.

When you step onto a train, you are primarily trusting the train conductor and the train company to ensure your safety for the duration of your trip. You trust that you will be transported from point A to point B in an efficient and secure manner that does not involve injury. In most contexts, this is the case. However, on the off chance you suffer an injury from a train accident, it is important to know all the facts in order to properly hire professional legal counsel. If your injury arises as a direct result of the train conductor, the company, or the train itself, you likely have a case where you may be able to get your fair compensation in order to pay for the damages.

There are various reasons for a train accident to occur. While some train accidents are out of our control, most causes of a train accident can be controlled. For example, if you see your train conductor texting or if they reek of alcohol or other drug-related substances, you can be sure that they are not upholding their duty to keep you safe. Some of the main reasons for train accidents include (but are certainty not limited to):

  • Conductor negligence
  • Derailment of the train
  • Faulty equipment
  • Train on train collision
  • Collision with another automobile
  • Collapsed bridges
  • Conductor under the influence of alcohol or drugs

No matter what the reason for the train accident, most accidents will cause serious injury. The severity of the injury ranges depending on the direct impact to the person. Regardless of the injury, it is important that you receive your fair compensation if it is the fault of the train company. Injuries are not only traumatic, but they are also costly. It should come as no surprise that the American medical system is expensive, and often poses a financial burden on the victim of the accident and their family. Nobody should have to worry about dealing with piling legal paperwork in addition to the burden of paying for their medical expenses.

If you or someone you love has suffered an injury from a train accident, do not hesitate to reach out to Cohen & Cohen and we will be more than happy to set you up with a train accident lawyer on our team who will fight for your fair compensation.

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. Wayne Cohen 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.
