Although train accidents may occur less often than automobile accidents, the resulting injuries from a train accident are likely catastrophic and can result in serious injury or death. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury or death as result of a train accident, please contact the experienced attorneys at Larson & Larimer.
As with bus operators, commercial trains and the companies that charge passengers to use their trains are considered common carriers and owe their passengers the highest duty of care under the law to ensure their safety. In addition to injuring passengers, train accidents often occur at unsafe railroad crossings where the victim of the accident could be the driver of a motor vehicle, a passenger of the motor vehicle, or a pedestrian.
If you or a loved one is injured in a train accident, navigating through the legal issues could be daunting. In particular, there may be numerous parties responsible for the accident, including operators, owners or lessors of the train, employer of the operator, manufacturers and suppliers of the train or parts of the train, mechanics, traffic controllers, governmental entities, etc. A thorough investigation of a train accident is essential to determine the liable parties and to maximize your recovery. Some of these parties may include governmental entities subject to the Colorado Governmental Immunity Act (CGIA).
If you have been injured in a train accident, it is imperative that you contact the attorneys at Larson & Larimer as quickly as possible to ensure a prompt investigation and preservation of your rights under the CGIA, if necessary.
