Why You Need a Train Accident Lawyer
Train accidents have been on the rise in recent years in Ontario. Most accidents involving trains occur at railway crossings with roadways. Some accidents involve derailments. A small number of accidents involve train collisions with pedestrians. We have experience in all accidents involving trains.
We have extensive knowledge of the laws governing railway operators as well as the municipalities whose road is crossed by the railway authority. We have extensive experience in analyzing railway crossings and have been successful in establishing numerous deficiencies including inappropriate lighting, bells, railway gates, signage and configuration of the crossing. Accidents involving trains are usually catastrophic. It is imperative that you retain a train accident lawyer immediately after the accident so that the scene of the accident can be reviewed by our experts so that we can start building your winning case. Many times Transport Canada will investigate the train accident. It is essential that your train accident lawyer not only obtain the report from Transport Canada but also all of the data that was collected. Your train accident lawyer will also investigate whether the municipality is responsible for the accident in addition to the railway authority. We will determine whether the roadway leading up to the railway crossing was defective, whether there is a lack of signage, whether speed limits are inappropriate or whether trees, bushes, or brush obscure the railway crossing. Our personal injury lawyers leave no stone unturned when reviewing the facts surrounding a train accident. That’s the HimPro Advantage.
