How We Can Help After a Railroad Accident

Our in-house investigator photographs the site, evaluates medical records, and interviews witnesses. Because this investigator works only for our law firm, he can get to the scene quickly. This is critical to the preservation of evidence. Our lawyer makes sure that you are well-represented during interviews with the railroad company's investigators, insurance adjusters, and law enforcement. Both our investigator and our attorney work hard to protect your rights after a railroad accident.

If you have a serious injury as a result of a railroad crossing accident or train derailment, contact our Friendswood law firm to learn how we can help you obtain compensation for your injuries, medical bills, and lost income. Being in a train accident is stressful enough. We help you avoid the additional stress of dealing with the expenses of your accident.
