Dallas Railroad Accident Attorney
Handling Texas Train Accident Claims
People often pull up to red and green lights and go past railroad crossing devices and other safety devices assuming they are in good working order. While this makes sense and should seem reasonable, this is not always the case. Many municipalities, train companies, and other entities are legally obligated to maintain safe crossings and intersections.
Unfortunately, railroad and train companies often fail in their duty to maintain safe road/train track intersections. These acts of negligence can lead to dangerous railroad crossing accidents in both rural and urban settings.
