Albuquerque Railroad Accident Lawyer

Injured in a train accident? We can help!

Railroads were at one time the peak of transportation technology; they are very large and can carry many people as well as thousands of pounds of cargo. However there are many ways for an error to occur on a train, or a malfunction with other related machinery. There are basically three ways that a train accident can occur: one is through miscommunication and can result in two trains meeting in a head-on collision. Another way is when a wheel jumps off of the track and results in derailment. One other way for railroad accidents to occur is through a boiler explosion, although boiler explosion is less common today as boilers are not always used on modern locomotives.

There can be very serious legal repercussions when a locomotive accident occurs; there are many people's lives at risk, as well as possible valuable cargo. If an individual were to intentionally cause a railroad accident, then the penalty could be life imprisonment. If you have suffered injuries in a railroad accident, then you may be able to collect money damages for your injuries.

An Albuquerque injury lawyer will be able to help you through the legal proceedings and provide zealous representation of your case in court.
