Following a train accident, widespread and catastrophic injuries are unfortunately commonplace. Even when a train just derails, rather than colliding with another engine or something stuck on the tracks, passengers are likely to be seriously injured due to the lack of restraints and other protective measures inside train cars. Afterward, it is crucial for injured parties or the families of those who lost their lives to seek compensation from the liable party, which is often the train company itself.
At Jackson Law Offices, P.C., our personal injury attorneys are well-versed in the details often surrounding a train accident case, such as possible liability, the extent of injuries, and dealing with large insurance companies. In February 2018, an Amtrak passenger train collided with a parked freight train, killing two and injuring more than 100 people; our train accident lawyers began hearing claims for the injured in this incident, as well as many others like it throughout the years. We are licensed to represent clients in both South Carolina and Georgia, allowing us to provide our professional legal services to people throughout both states.
