Determining Liability

Most people are very careful when crossing train tracks. If we see the guards go down and the lights go up, we all know we need to stop and wait for the train. When a car gets hit by a train, it is usually the result of some issues with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) or the privately owned train company involved such as:

  • Train operator or switchman negligence
  • Inadequate maintenance and upkeep of tracks, rails and guards
  • Overloaded train cars

Because of the size and speed of a train, victims who are hit by trains usually suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, amputations, scarring and disfigurement, burn injuries and spinal cord injuries.

We have the experience and knowledge to get you the compensation you deserve for the injuries you have suffered.
