Metrolink & Other Accident Cases throughout CA

There over one million train-cars in the United States. According to the Federal Railroad Administration (“FRA”), There are approximately 3,000 train accidents annually and nearly 1,000 of them result in fatalities. Other sources suggest that the actual number of train accidents and incidents may be much higher. Surprisingly, trains have historically been thought of as the safer transportation alternative to flying and other methods of transportation.

When a train collision occurs, numerous government agencies will investigate the train accident.

It is important that you promptly contact a skilled California train accident attorney in order to effectively process your injury claim.
