Oklahoma Train Accident & Railroad Crossing Lawyers

Train Accident Attorneys serving Oklahoma City, Lawton and cities throughout Oklahoma

Many Oklahoma Railroad Crossings are Dangerous - Cars, Trucks and Pedestrians are no match for a Train.

Unmarked railroad crossings, improperly maintained tracks and equipment, driver inexperience, negligence or fatigue, can also be the cause of serious accidents and injuries.

If you've been injured in an Oklahoma train accident, we can help.

In Oklahoma, trains often carry thousands of tons of cargo and travel at high rates of speed. Consequently the result of any train collision, no matter how minor, can be catastrophic injuries and even death. The types of railway accidents vary as much as the causes.

Oklahoma Train & Railroad Crossing Accident Lawyers

Common types of Oklahoma railroad accidents are:

  • Train/Train collisions
  • Truck/Train collisions
  • Train /Car collisions
  • Derailments
  • Pedestrian/Train Accidents
  • Railroad Crossing Accidents

The railroad company and its employees must take care to maintain the track, and see that there is a clear line of sight at railroad crossings for motor vehicles, pedestrians and the train engineer. Since it takes a much greater distance for a train to come to a stop than a car or truck it is vitally important that all drivers have a clear line of sight to each other.

Since injuries of all kinds and even death can often occur the victims of these train collisions and their families are faced with long periods of medical treatment, staggering medical bills, lost wages , pain and emotional distress. Families of those victims who have unfortunately lost their lives can be faced with medical and burial expenses and the loss of the families financial support.

WHAT TO DO
If You've Been Injured in a Train Accident or Railroad Crossing Accident in Oklahoma City, Lawton or anywhere in Oklahoma:

  1. Call 911 and report the train accident to the police or highway patrol
  2. If able, Safely Take Photos or Videos of the damage to the vehicles.
  3. Seek immediate medical attention for your injuries. You should go to the hospital by ambulance if you are in significant pain or have suffered any head trauma
  4. Do not give a statement to the train company's insurance company until you have retained a lawyer to advise you and protect your interests.
  5. Do not post anything about the train accident or your injuries on social media that could jeopardize your chances of recovery.

Train & Railroad Crossing Accidents Injure and Kill Too Many in Oklahoma

There are far too many Railroad Crossing Accidents here in Oklahoma.

Defective train track warning lights, bells, and barricades would allow even the most wary driver to proceed across the train tracks with the expectation of safety. Trains many times are traveling at speeds that would not allow them to stop safely, and with the confusion and noise at most railroad crossings, a car or truck driver could be unaware of the fast approaching train.

Beyond defective equipment, many times train engineers are driving at unsafe speeds, without enough sleep, or even worse, are distracted by their phones, texting, or on-board computer systems.

When a serious train accident occurs, railroad companies are represented by the best insurance attorneys money can buy. That's why if you've been involved in any kind of railroad crossing or train accident, you need the Best Oklahoma Train Accident Lawyer on your side.
