Lafayette Train & Railroad Accident Lawyer
Railroad companies have a responsibility to properly maintain their railroad cars, engines, tracks and the 30 feet of land on either side. If proper maintenance is neglected, serious accidents can occur. These accidents can result in life-altering injuries that may require life-long medical treatment. They can also limit a person’s ability to work.

We have a thorough understanding of state and federal laws regulating the speed of trains and proper maintenance standards.

One example of a case we handled involved a motorcycle hitting a hole in the concrete slabs next to a train track, seriously injuring the rider. When properly configured, the concrete slabs are supposed to link together with the road. If the area is not properly maintained, the slabs can pull apart, creating a large gap. We successfully received $75,000 for our client.
Other train accident cases we have handled involved:
- Train derailment
- Speeding through intersections
- Failure to warn as a train is approaching through either lights or crossing gates
- Failure to maintain line of sight on tracks
- Collisions between trains
