Train Accidents


Why Choose Our Firm To Handle Your Train Accident Personal Injury Case?

Among the numerous rail systems that connect the Bay Area include CalTrain is one of the largest operators of Bay Area railways. Other rail systems in the area include Amtrak, Transit America Services, Inc., Metrolink, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and various other freight and cargo companies.

This particular commuter train system runs from San Francisco to Gilroy and serves approximately 60,000 commuters each and every day. CalTrain has averaged approximately one catastrophic injury or death a month over the course of many years.

However, 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 they carry much more force. As such, accidents involving trains are often more devastating and catastrophic.

If you are a victim of a train accident or lost a loved one in a tragic train accident, turning to a knowledgeable law firm is extremely important. Call us for a free case evaluation at 415-544-0115.
