Railroad Accidents

While rare, railroad accidents happen regularly in Washington, often with devastating results

Many railroad accidents are preventable and are caused by poor track maintenance, poorly marked railroad crossings, and distracted train operators. Regardless of the cause, railroad accidents are typically catastrophic, often resulting in severe injury or death for the victims.

With our experience working with clients injured in railroad accidents, we possess a huge advantage. We know what our clients will be facing as they move towards recovery, we know how to build complete and compelling claims, and we know how the insurance companies will respond. Since insurance claims and policies related to railroad collisions are complicated, our experience enables us to efficiently navigate the path and avoid pitfalls that less experienced attorneys may struggle with.

Which type of visitor are you?

The injury attorneys at Brett McCandlis & Brown have worked with hundreds of clients, and most fall into one of these four groups. Each type of client needs special support, and each has a different set of interests and concerns.

What does a successful railroad accident claim look like?

When a Brett Law client is suffering from injuries caused by negligence, we take special steps to identify the extent of their injuries and damages, and to determine how the collision affects our client's life, now and in the future. Many injuries require long-term, costly medical care, and we ensure that this cost is fully factored into the insurance-claim process. A successful claim is one in which our client receives a settlement or verdict that enables them to fully recover financially, and compensates them for their current and future losses.

Helping clients heal is our job, and we are very, very good at our job.

As injury attorneys, we have achieved exceptional results for our clients after a railroad accident, including:
