Southfield Railroad Accident Attorneys
The weight of trains and the speeds at which they travel make them highly dangerous vehicles. It is vitally important that train conductors and their employers take every reasonable step to keep themselves and others safe. When they fail in this duty, innocent people may suffer catastrophic or even fatal injuries.
There is no excuse for a conductor or railroad company that fails to keep people safe. If you or a member of your family has been harmed in a train accident that should have been prevented, you may be eligible to receive compensation.

Causes of Train Accidents
There are many people involved in the safe operation of the railroad system: the conductors who operate the trains, the workers who build and maintain the tracks, the employers who hire and train workers, and many others. Any of these parties may be liable for a preventable train crash. You may have grounds for legal action if you have been harmed by:
- Improperly Marked Crossing
- Lack of Safety Gates
- Improperly Maintained Tracks
- Driver Error
- Mechanical Defect
- Employer Negligence
After a railroad accident, victims may be left to cope with painful injuries, lasting disabilities, costly medical treatments, or the tragic loss of loved ones. Negligent parties who cause such catastrophes should be held accountable for their actions. Our Southfield train accident attorneys work hard to help victims of careless railroad companies win fair compensation.
If you have been harmed by a careless railroad company or employee, your injuries are not your fault. To discuss how you may be able to seek compensation from the parties responsible, contact the Southfield railroad accident lawyers at Ravid & Associates, P.C. at (866) 644-6587.
