Representing Victims Of Light Rail Accidents

Light rail train accidents typically involve:

  • Trains hitting a pedestrian
  • Trains hitting vehicles
  • Assaults on trains

Some accidents are the result of human error. But other accidents can be the result of negligence by METRORail. It is important to work with an experienced lawyer to help build a strong case on your behalf.

We will thoroughly investigate the accident to determine if negligence played a part in causing it. We will ask important questions such as:

  • Did clearly visible signs warn pedestrians of dangers?
  • Were barriers in place?
  • Were warning lights visible?
  • Were the guardrails functioning properly?
  • Were the train's brakes functioning properly?
  • Was there a train derailment?
  • Was the operator distracted, fatigued or impaired?
