Ohio motorists travel daily over railroad crossings without incident, relying on the safety features of the train and the railroad crossing. Those safety features are not always up-to-date and often do not prevent accidents or injuries. The most common cause of a train accident is the failure of a safety feature, such as the train's lights, the air whistle, or the railway crossing. Often, foliage, buildings, and other impediments may obscure a driver's view. When such failures occur and the locomotive engineer fails to sound the horn when approaching the railroad crossing, serious accidents can occur with motorists crossing the tracks.
If you are employed by the railroad company and have suffered injury, you must contact an attorney in a timely manner to file a claim under FELA (Federal Employers Liability Act). Contact our firm to properly direct you in filing such a claim and obtaining the representation you need.
