Baton Rouge Train Accident Lawyer

Louisiana Railroad Injury Attorney

If you are a railroad worker who has been injured at work or if you have been injured in a railroad crossing accident, the personal injury lawyers at the Bohrer Brady LLC can help make sure you receive the compensation you need and deserve.

We are here to help you. No fee unless we collect for you.

Train accident injuries and railroad worker injuries are almost always serious or even catastrophic. Our lawyers can evaluate your case — at no cost to you — and explain the law and your options.

  • Our law firm has a long history of successfully handling FELA claims for railroad workers. Through FELA (Federal Employers’ Liability Act), you have the right to sue when the railroad’s negligence caused your injury.
  • Railroad workers can be injured by a hard coupling in the yard, while repairing track, when fixing railroad cars, and in collisions with trucks and cars. In every craft, in every railroad job, injuries are covered by FELA. Make sure you have a lawyer who understands your rights.
  • Railroad crossing accidents can cause devastating injuries and death. When the car’s driver is at fault, injured passengers have a claim against the driver, which is usually covered by car insurance. If the impact caused the train to derail, injured train workers may also have a claim against the car’s driver.
  • When a dangerous railroad crossing causes an accident, the injured victims and the families of wrongful death victims have the right to make a claim against the railroad. Our personal injury attorneys will investigate the circumstances. What was the train’s speed? Did the safety guards work? Did the crossing need a guard, but one was not there? Did the train sound its horn?

If you have suffered a railroad accident injury, or if a family member has died in a fatal train accident, tell us about it. Our personal injury litigation lawyers can help you understand the laws and your rights. You do not have to face a big railroad company or insurance company alone.
