What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Improperly Marked Crossings

Train accidents can be a serious threat to drivers and residents who live near railroads. There is a common perception in our country that drivers and pedestrians who are injured in train accidents must have been doing something wrong, or even foolish. While it’s certainly true that train-related injuries can be caused by people who recklessly ignore proper railroad safety, this is not always the case.

For the sake of citizens’ safety, it is the government’s duty to clearly label all railroad crossings. This allows drivers to exercise proper caution, such as slowing down and looking for a train before continuing. It also alerts pedestrians to a potential danger. Unfortunately local governments do not always live up to this obligation.

Marking Errors

At the offices of Jacksonville personal injury lawyer Don Guthrie, we are prepared to represent victims in many kinds of improperly marked railroad crossing cases, including:

  • Lack of appropriate signage
  • Incorrect or misleading signage
  • Insufficient lighting to safely cross tracks
  • Vegetation or other circumstances blocking signage

Seeking Justice

The results of a train accident can be devastating for victims and their families. Trains are large and powerful machines that can inflict serious harm on anyone involved in a collision with them. It is deeply unfair when people are forced to live with physical pain, reduced quality of life, and other forms of suffering as the result of another party’s negligence.

If you or a loved one has been in an accident because a railroad crossing was not adequately marked, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. Taking legal action may help you win compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
