Train Accident & Injury Attorney in Asheville

Railroad Accidents / FELA

The railroad accident lawyer at The Elmore and Smith Law Firm, PC has extensive knowledge regarding the consequences of railroad crossing accidents and can help you win the compensation you deserve.

In the United States, a railroad crossing accident occurs approximately every two hours in which a pedestrian or vehicle is struck by a train.

Compared to other accidents such as car accidents and motorcycle accidents, railroad crossing accidents tend to be more catastrophic especially when you take into account the weight of the train and the high speeds that trains often travel.

Railroad Crossing / Train accidents are often caused by:

  • Excessive train speed
  • Lack of flashing lights
  • Lack of mechanical guards
  • Obstructed crossings
  • Mechanical failure by the train and/or crossing signals
