Charleston Railroad Injury Law Firm

Every year, thousands of Americans are injured or killed in railroad crossing accidents. At the Huntington office of Cyrus, Adkins & Walker, Attorneys at Law , we help those injured in train-related accidents recover the compensation they need to treat their injuries, pay their bills and support their families.

Railroad trains weigh between hundreds and thousands of tons and travel at high speeds. Due to the sheer size and weight of trains, accidents involving train are much more serious, and more likely to be fatal, than accidents involving other types of motor vehicles.

Railroads are strictly regulated by the federal government's Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). Federal regulations include speed limits based on the type of train, class of track and location of the train, and warnings at intersections and lights may be required. Railroad companies are also required to properly maintain their equipment, hire and train qualified engineers, keep their tracks clear of debris, and maintain a proper look-out for motorists and pedestrians along the tracks.

Due to the complexity of federal and state regulations, it is important to hire experienced attorneys to protect your interests during your personal injury claim.

At Cyrus, Adkins & Walker, Attorneys at Law , we represent clients injured as drivers in train-car collisions, and those injured in pedestrian-train accidents. Track defects and equipment defects, as well as failure to warn or signal the arrival of a train are among the most common causes of railroad accidents.

Serious Compensation For Serious Injuries

Accidents involving trains often leave victims with serious, permanent injuries that require repeated surgeries and lifelong medical treatments.

At Cyrus, Adkins & Walker, Attorneys at Law , our lawyers make sure we understand the full nature and extent of our clients' injuries. Once we know how the long-term effects an injury will have on our clients' lives, we are able to obtain compensation packages to make up for lost wages, expensive and ongoing medical treatments, and lifelong pain and suffering.
