Train Accident Attorney in Connecticut

Build Your Claim with Our Personal Injury Lawyers in Waterbury & New Britain

Even though train travel has decreased steadily in popularity in recent years, the tracks still crisscross Connecticut State and it is not uncommon to see a passenger train or freighter racing from New Haven up to Hartford. As trains age and require more and more maintenance to run safely and smoothly, they pose greater and greater hazards to both the people who ride them and drivers and pedestrians nearby. There is essentially no such thing as a minor train accident, as a derailment or a collision of any kind can and usually brings catastrophe.

If you have been hurt in a train accident, either as a passenger or passerby, you need to act quickly and retain the services of a New Britain injury attorney, as a statute of limitations of just two years kicks in the moment you were injured. At the Law Offices of Brian J. Mongelluzzo, our Connecticut personal injury lawyer can take up your case and help you pursue maximum compensation for your damages. Call us at (203) 663-3695 today.

Causes and Types of Train Accidents

Although a train is significantly larger than any other type of vehicle on the land, it is a vehicle all the same and must be driven by an engineer. Commonplace human error and negligence can cause them to make crucial mistakes that lead to a train accident. Maintenance crews who must ensure that the trains are in full functioning order are also not exempt from slacking on the job or overlooking a minor error that later causes big problems.

A train accident may occur when:

  • An engineer fails to switch tracks
  • Defective parts cause a train to become a runaway
  • Railroad crossings do not warn cars of approaching train
  • Rail system poorly maintained and leads to derailment

We Fight for What You Deserve

If you have been in a train accident and need to take the matter to court, your opposition will be prepared to fight your claim. Odds are high that the train company has an entire team of attorneys ready to challenge your claims, question the amount of compensation you need, and generally make your recovery more difficult. Our Connecticut personal injury attorneys are not intimidated by the tactics large corporations can employ because we know full well that they are subject to the law and liability like everyone else.

When we take up your case, we work hard to make sure you are compensated for the following types of damages:

Our teamwork approach means that your case will be analyzed and reviewed from multiple points of view, and our contingency fee agreements mean our services come to you with no upfront or out-of-pocket expenses. We do not get paid unless you are paid through a settlement or verdict.
