Augusta Railroad Crossing Accidents Attorneys

Georgia Railroad Crossing Accident Claims Attorneys

There are thousands of highway-railroad crossings throughout the United States that millions cross every day. From private crossing to railroad crossings used by the public, any railroad crossing has the potential to be deadly. According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), there were 295 deaths and 893 injuries at railroad crossing in the U.S. in 2003. At the law office of Wall Ellison in Augusta, Georgia, we represent people and their family who were killed or injured in a Georgia railroad crossing accident.

Much has been done in Georgia to improve crossings in order to prevent train collisions. Despite what has been accomplished, too many people are killed or injured in these types of accidents every year. Many of these are young people who were involved in accidents on rural railroad crossings.

Accidents Caused by Railroad Negligence

Many factors can contribute to a railroad crossing accident. Our firm has investigated numerous accidents that could have been prevented by taking a few simple precautions. When a railroad or train conductor is negligent, the result can be catastrophic. Some of the causes of railroad crossing accidents involve:

  • Negligently designed and marked railroad crossing
  • Trains exceeding the speed limit
  • Conductors not blowing the whistle at railroad crossing
  • Crossings that do not have improved signage

Catastrophic injury claims against the railroad industry are unique cases that many personal injury attorneys are not capable of pursuing. There are hosts of federal and state regulations that must be addressed and understood. Our firm will conduct a prompt and thorough investigation of your accident in order to be able to analyze thoroughly the facts of your case.
