Railroad Wrongful Death Attorneys

Our wrongful death attorneys understand that working on the railroads is dangerous, sometimes deadly, work. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports the fatal injury rate associated with railroad jobs is more than double the rate for all other types of industrial work, and many of those deaths occur as a result of the rail company's negligence.

No amount of money can ever make up for the loss of a loved one, but when a loved one's loss is due to another party's negligence, the pain can be especially intense. In the wake of these deaths, survivors are left dealing not only with the physical and financial losses associated with their loved one's passing, but also with the knowledge that, had the rail company been more careful in adhering to its obligations, the death would not have occurred.

Railroad Related Deaths

The rail company's negligence is at the heart of every wrongful death case, but proving negligence usually is no easy task. You need a skilled attorney who's experienced in dealing with wrongful death cases, particularly in the way they apply to railroad-related deaths. It takes time and know-how to build a strong case that supports the victim's side of the story and clearly establishes the claim of wrongful death.

At Rail Justice, our wrongful death lawyers help victims of railroad wrongful death incidents protect their rights and the rights of their loved ones so they can receive the compensation to help cover the financial damages associated with their loss. That includes medical and funeral costs for the deceased, pain and suffering, future loss of earnings, loss of companionship and other damages.
