Connecticut Train & Ship Accident Attorneys
Providing Tenacious Legal Counsel
The railroad cases can be divided into several groupings:
- Claims by passengers
- Claims by motorists struck at crossings
- Claims by pedestrians injured along the right of way
While we have handled all these types of claims, the law is far more favorable
on some than on others. We have handled a railway crossing claim in which
the train was obligated to stop prior to the crossing, but failed to do
so. We have also handled other claims in which the train was not obliged
to stop and the main issue was whether the crossing protection should
have been upgraded and, if so, by whom.
Some of these public transportation accidents occurred in Connecticut.
Others occurred elsewhere but injured Connecticut residents. Our office
has acted as liaison counsel, coordinating a group of attorneys across
the nation handling claims arising from a bus accident in England that
claimed the lives of a number of American tourists.
More You Should Know About Train or Ship Accidents
Although we always encourage a careful choice of lawyers, persons involved
in public transportation accidents may not wish to wait too long in seeking
legal advice. For example, in some injuries aboard ships or ferries, there
is a risk that language printed on the ticket could limit the time within
which a valid claim may be brought.
