San Francisco Attorney Helping Victims of Railroad Crossing Accidents

Railroad analysts report on thousands of accidents at railroad crossings every year. These collisions have resulted in hundreds of fatalities, and thousands of other injuries.

All railroad crossings are dangerous, and over 90% of all fatal train accidents happen at a railroad crossing.

Trains almost always have the right-of-way on the railroad tracks, and drivers approaching a rail crossing have a responsibility to stop and wait until the train has passed.

Train operators and railroad companies also have a duty to be as safe as possible. Engineers are required to use a train horn or whistle to alert others that a train is approaching a crossing. The law also requires engineers to turn on the train’s headlights and use horns that meet a minimum loudness standard.

At most crossings, railroad companies are responsible for maintaining all lights, bells and crossing arms. These are required to be fully functional at all times.

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.

My attorney and his Assistant helped me through my injury case. It was a real pleasure having their legal advice available to me in a time when I couldn’t think straight or even figure out what to do after my accident injury.
