Train Accident Scenarios

Federal authorities conduct an exhaustive investigation of all train accidents. Our experienced Kansas City train accident attorneys follow up to talk to witnesses or survivors and analyze the crash scene with accident reconstruction and safety experts. We work hard to answer those questions about what caused or contributed to the crash.

It is possible that:

  • The oncoming train obscured by trees or overgrown brush
  • The crossing gate was broken
  • The train was speeding
  • The engineer failed to sound the whistle
  • There been previous deaths at the same railroad crossing

If we establish that the railroad company or other entity was negligent, our team is skilled at going after them for full compensation. We take into account all long-term impacts from a permanent disability injury, including lost earning capacity, future medical care, and damages for pain and suffering.

If you were injured in a train crash, we want to help you. There are caps on compensation, a short window to file suit, and the transit authority has many immunities, but if you suffered serious injuries we can fight for your rights.

Call our office at (816) 484-3776 if your family is reeling from a train collision. We offer a free consultation, including visits to the home or hospital of the injured.
