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.
