Train Accident Lawyers in Salt Lake City
Our Lawyers Are Here to Fight for Injury Victims with Complex Claims
Thousands of train accidents occur every year, injuring hundreds of people and killing dozens more. Even relatively minor train crashes can cause serious injuries due to the sheer number of passengers and the size and speed of trains. However, passengers aren’t the only people at risk. Victims in train crashes are sometimes people who fell onto the tracks or were crossing the tracks at the wrong time because of a defective signal or gate. No matter the cause, anyone seriously injured in a train accident deserves the chance to seek legal recourse.
Our experienced trial lawyers are here to fight for you if you were injured in a train accident caused by someone else. Bringing a successful claim against a big train company is not easy—which is why you need a firm with skilled lawyers and ample resources on your side. We have both, along with a dedication to fighting for justice. If you were injured, don’t hesitate to reach out. We can explain your rights and how we can help you secure compensation for your injuries.

Causes of Train Accidents
Negligence by a member of the train crew, the company responsible for maintaining the train, or the entity in charge of infrastructure components like tracks and train gates can all contribute to accidents. No matter what was to blame for your accident, our attorneys can help investigate to find who you can hold liable.
Train crashes we can help with include:
- Train/train collisions
- Car/train collisions
- Railroad crossing accidents
Derailments often lead to the greatest number of injured passengers. Most are the result of ignored safety standards, but they can also be caused by:
- Broken or faulty tracks
- Obstacles or obstructions on the train tracks
- Faulty or malfunctioning equipment
- Excessive cargo weight
Once we have determined the cause of a train accident, our team is here to create a legal strategy meant to maximize your compensation. While the at-fault company is likely to do everything it can to deny your claim, our trial lawyers do not give up when faced with challenges. We dig in and take every step possible to help our clients.
