TRAIN ACCIDENT LAWYERS

WHY CHOOSE OUR FIRM TO HANDLE YOUR TRAIN ACCIDENT PERSONAL INJURY CASE?

The Bay Area has numerous rail systems that connect the intra-Bay Area as well as trains to and from the Bay Area to other parts of California and other states. CalTrain operates between San Francisco and the South Bay. Other rail systems in the area include Amtrak, Transit America Services, Inc., Metrolink, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART). There are other freight and cargo companies as well.

Caltrain, for example, is a commuter train system that runs from San Francisco to Gilroy and serves approximately 60,000 commuters each and every day. One little known fact is that CalTrain has averaged approximately one catastrophic injury or death a month over the course of many years.

Unlike passenger vehicles, or even cable cars, trains require a greater distance to come to a complete stop. It is not as easy for a train to brake as it is for a car, and trains weight much more and move with much more force. As such, accidents involving trains are often even more devastating and catastrophic.
