Derailment Accidents

Train derailments don’t happen often, but when they do, they can result in serious injuries. Whether you are an injured railroad worker or a victim of a derailment accident, you could be eligible for financial compensation. Working on railroads is inherently dangerous and workers rights must be protected.

At James F. Humphreys & Associates, L.C. we represent injured railroad workers in claims involving the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) as well as victims of railroad accidents. Call us today toll free or send us an email to schedule your free consultation.

Representing Workers, Passengers And Bystanders

Derailment accidents can be caused by error or negligence committed by the railroad or by a third party.

We investigate the accident to determine who is liable for your injuries and hold those parties accountable. Victims of derailments often suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Amputations
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Penetrating head injuries
  • Burns
  • Toxic exposure
  • Entrapment and suffocation
  • Crush injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

The losses from these injuries can be significant and injury victims and their families often need compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and, in wrongful death cases, funeral expenses.
