Train accidents are devastating. Trains not only operate at high speeds, but their passengers commonly do not have seat belts. A derailment or crash can throw people out of their seats and force them to collide with other passengers, toppling luggage, and the inside of the cabin. No one ever expects a train crash to happen, but when they do, people are often killed and injured. Victims need a Pennsylvania train injury lawyer to get answers and fight for the compensation they deserve. Speak with a seasoned accident attorney from Ostroff Injury Law to learn more.
Common Causes of Train Accidents
Trains including Amtrak, New Jersey Transit, SEPTA, and others are required to take strict safety precautions before and during every trip. While train accidents are not as common as motor vehicle crashes, they still sometimes occur. Factors that may lead to train derailments and collisions include (but are not limited to):
- Poor track or equipment conditions
- Poor train maintenance
- Train operator negligence
- Infrastructure problems
For more than 25 years, Attorney Jon Ostroff has successfully represented train injury victims in Pennsylvania. He has stood up to companies like Greyhound, the largest bus company in America, and made them pay for their negligence.
Big transportation companies frequently have lawyers and other resources on hand to help them avoid taking responsibility. After a serious crash, they work to convince victims to accept a small settlement and waive their rights to further compensation. Ostroff Injury Law doesn’t stand for that. We have the knowledge and experience to protect victims.
