RAILROAD CROSSING


SPENCER WINS RAILROAD CROSSING CASES

LET SPENCER HELP

The railroad crossing accident lawyers at the Tieman, Spencer and Hicks, P.C., know that a railroad crossing accident can be catastrophic.  In the United States a train hits a car about every three hours. Almost 1000 people per year are killed, and thousands more suffer serious injuries as a result of trains colliding with motor vehicles.

Many people injured in train crashes are often wrongfully accused of being at fault by railroad companies. In fact, most railroad crossing accidents could be prevented if the railroad companies paid more attention to public safety, rather than trying to blame motor vehicle drivers for things that are out of a driver’s control.

For example, if railroad companies would install flashing lights and automatic gates at crossings 94% of crossing accidents could be prevented.  Simply removing brush and trees along the rail that blocks an approaching motorist’s view of the track is an inexpensive, but underutilized solution that would also greatly reduce train crossing collisions.

The experienced railroad crossing accident lawyers at Tieman, Spencer and Hicks, P.C., have over one hundred years of combined experience. Client satisfaction is our top priority, and that’s why our car crash lawyers leave an unrelentingly AGGRESSIVE, FAST and FOCUSED approach to cases. We completely understand and empathize with the complex trauma and injuries a railroad crossing accident can cause and innocent victim and his or her family.

Every railroad company has attorneys working hard to limit the amount of money a person injured in a railroad crossing accident recovers. The railroad crossing accident lawyers at Tieman, Spencer and Hicks, P.C., employ a very AGGRESSIVE approach, when it comes to fighting with railroad companies and their attorneys in order to recover every dollar that the victim of a railroad crossing accident deserves.  We work FAST because we know the financial hardship that an injury accident creates.  And, we are FOCUSED on WINNING justice for every client that is injured in a car crash.

If you have been injured in a car crash, put Tieman, Spencer and Hicks P.C.’s AGGRESSIVE, FAST AND FOCUSED approach to fight for and WIN all of the money you deserve to compensate you for your injuries.

NO UPFRONT CHARGES

Our fee is contingent.  It is a percentage of the money we recover for you.  

We will advance to the costs involved in proving up your case and maximizing your recovery.

If there is no recovery you owe nothing.

WHAT TO DO IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE CRASH

If you are physically able:

  • Call the police;
  • Obtain contact information for any witnesses;
  • Take photos of the scene of the accident and all the vehicles involved.
  • Seek immediate medical treatment if you suspect that you have any type of injury.  The injury might be worse than you think.

WHAT NOT TO DO FOLLOWING THE CRASH

Under no circumstances agree to give a statement, recorded or otherwise to the railroad company.  In many instances, a railroad company will use such a statement to try to limit your recovery.

Never accept an offer of settlement from a railroad company without first obtaining a second opinion from Tieman, Spencer and Hicks, P.C.  The offer will probably be low and will not take into account all the damages that you have suffered.

Never sign any document sent to you by a railroad company without first obtaining second opinion from Tieman, Spencer and Hicks, P.C. The document might constitute a release of your claim, thereby barring you from seeking further damages.

THE RAILROAD COMPANY IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE

Railroad companies are profit driven.  Every dollar that a railroad company can avoid paying to the injured victim of a railroad crossing accident equals another dollar of potential profit for the company.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS

The laws governing railroad crossing cases are complex. Your ability to recover the damages that you deserve can be impacted by guessing and potentially lost if you delay taking action. With so much at stake, you need an attorney that is AGGRESSIVE, FAST AND FOCUSED. You need an attorney working to WIN for you.  You need Tieman, Spencer, and Hicks, P.C.
