Train Accidents

The Federal Railroad Administration Office of Safety Analysis reports that there were 1,427 train accidents across the U.S. in 2013.

Most people assume that railroad accidents are exceedingly rare. While car accidents are much more common, train accidents happen more often than we may realize. Thomas A. Camp, P.C., has represented many clients who were victims of train accidents.

Train Accidents Are More Common Than You Think

In our community, train accidents remain a salient issue because there is a railway in the county east of Athens that runs east to the South Carolina border.

Mr. Camp's office has dealt with several accidents — big and small — that have occurred in our community and he's prepared to fight unrelentingly to pursue compensation in your case.

If you are the victim of a train accident, you should call a lawyer who can fight for the compensation you deserve. Much like other accidents, you could be eligible to recover damages to cover medical bills, lost wages, damaged property as well as additional money for pain and suffering.

Factors Influencing Your Case

Like any accident, establishing negligence is essential. Thomas Camp has represented clients in railroad crossing accidents and has helped clients establish negligence. By carefully examining the details of your case, Mr. Camp can study whether your accident is associated with sight distances, defective crossings or inappropriate signage.

In cases where a driver or pedestrian is killed in a train accident, it may be grounds for a wrongful death suit. Only a conversation with an attorney and a case evaluation can clarify whether you or those representing a deceased victim have a case worth pursuing.

There is no risk when making the initial call. All train accidents are covered on contingency basis, meaning you don't pay if we don't recover for you.
