Pedestrian - Train Safety

Pedestrian should avoid these areas if possible, and follow these simple guidelines:

  • Use railroad crossings to get over railroad tracks
  • Obey all crossing signs and warning signals
  • Don’t stand next to a moving train. Trains can sway, and a derailment can happen any time
  • Never cross railroad tracks until the lights have stopped flashing, and it is safe to do so
  • Never use railroad bridges for fishing, hunting or any other recreational activity.  There is only enough room for trains on these bridges
  • It is illegal to walk on train tracks

Back to Railroad Accidents


I am very thankful and appreciative for the wonderful job that The Barnes Firm has done for me with my auto accident. I think I was lucky to have Landon and Ali worked on my case. They were always available for me.

I was in a car accident and contacted, The Barnes Firm. I was transferred to an attorney right away. The attorney was very pleasant and helpful. He answered all my questions. He set up an appointment that same week. The attorney himself, came over to my home. He went over the paperwork and explained the procedure very thoroughly. The attorney’s paralegal contacted me right away. The office has been in touch with me and genuinely concerned about my injuries. This firm was on top of my case. I highly recommend them. Please call The Barnes Firm.

I highly recommend The Barnes Firm and team of attorneys. Above and beyond all expectations. If you want a lawyer and a law firm that will actually care about you, and get your case done right, they are the best. They will work hard for you no matter the size of your case. I have recommended you guys to my family and friends! thank you
