Railroad Crossing

When a person is lucky enough to survive a collision with a train, he or she is usually left with some extremely serious injuries. The Van Dyck Law Firm, PLLC, has more than a decade of experience representing the interests of individuals dealing with personal injuries after a train accident, such as head injury, traumatic brain injury, back injury, spinal cord injury, internal injuries and multiple broken bones.


If you or a loved one has been hit by a train, then you may be wondering how the medical bills will get paid. It takes a long time to heal from the kinds of injuries a train accident will inflict, and that level of care can be expensive. If the railroad claims it was the victim’s fault and the story doesn’t make sense or the actions described do not fit with the personality of the individual injured, then it may be worth investigating even if the accident occurred several years ago.

Railroad accidents are not like other personal injury cases. Often, railroad companies will have their own private investigators and adjusters on the scene before the police arrive. They may gather or even tamper with evidence and always provide the police with their own version of the facts. Also, highly complicated federal laws and regulations sometimes take precedence over similar state mandates. Therefore, train accident lawsuits must be based on thorough and solid evidence and a comprehensive understanding of both federal and state law. Our approach involves a detailed investigation of the accident combined with meticulous examination of federal law.


At the Van Dyck Law Firm, we are dedicated to holding the railroad companies responsible for negligent and dangerous practices. Railroad accident lawsuits are often managed by a team of attorneys. Over many years of experience and involvement in this area of law, we have developed a solid network of professionals with the knowledge, skills and experience best suited to presenting a successful lawsuit. We will be with you at every step of the process and, when necessary, we will strengthen your case by recommending and collaborating with talented professionals.
