Railroad Crossing Accidents

Railroad Crossing Accidents

The number of Railroad Crossings in Georgia is staggering.  For profit, railroad companies travel through our towns and counties delivering chemicals, coal, and other materials and must give proper and adequate warning of their approach to every crossing regardless of whether it has flashing lights and a crossing gate or simply a cross-buck.  Federal law governs the speed of trains upon a particular class of track, and Railroad Engineers must sound their warning devices in an appropriate manner at the appropriate time.  Further, Railroads must maintain their rights of way and insure that the view of the traveling public is not obstructed.

Be assured that when someone is injured on railroad property, the railroad will have its attorneys and investigators out immediately.  Don’t wait to have your attorney on the case working for you.  Photographs of the scene, eye witnesses, whistle witnesses, and other evidence are critical to a successful case against a railroad, and you should not be left to rely solely upon what the railroad lawyers gathered to support their clients’ defenses.

As a defense lawyer, David Dekle defended Railroad Crossing cases and knows how aggressive Railroad Companies can be in litigation.  With this background, David Dekle is ready to put that knowledge to work for injured victims who suffer automobile train collisions caused by the negligence of the railroad.

Particularly dangerous are blind crossings with no crossing gates or lights as well as crossings in rural areas with multiple tracks.  Despite the responsibilities to do so, railroads fail to clear their rights of way causing obstructions to unsuspecting motorists.  Railroads are held to the same standards as everyone else.  They must exercise ordinary care not to cause harm to the traveling public.  Let David Dekle investigate you crossing accident claim and help you receive the compensation you deserve.
