In Massachusetts, persons involved in a railway accident can suffer serious injuries, incur significant medical expenses and can lose substantial income resulting from those injuries. Any time you are involved in an accident involving a railway, you should consult with an experienced attorney who can help assist you in recovering fair compensation under the circumstances.
Injuries may result from several different circumstances, including but not limited to, a motor vehicle collision with a rail car, a passenger of a rail car that is involved in an accident, or a passenger injured while entering/exiting a railcar, or a pedestrian struck by a railcar. In any such case, an experienced personal injury lawyer will know where to look for payment of related medical expenses, reimbursement for lost wages or patient co-payments resulting from the accident.
Even if the at fault party does not have adequate insurance to cover your injuries, an experienced personal injury attorney will know where to look for additional coverage and/or compensation for your serious injuries
More than simply investigating the potential exposure to the railroad company, an experienced personal injury lawyer will investigate what safety procedures were, or should have been in place at the time and/or determine if faulty rail equipment may have contributed to the injury. As a result, it is important that you consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer early in the process to facilitate investigation into whether the accident could, or should, have been prevented.
