What claims do I have?
There are several different claims you may have if you or a loved one has been involved in a train or railway accident. First, you may have a claim for negligence of the operator of the train. Second, you may have a claim for negligence against the owner of the railway if the owner is different from the operator of the train. Third, you may also have a claim for negligent entrustment or negligent hiring, training and supervision, if the owner of the railway is different than the operator of the train and the owner knew or should have known that the operator would operate the train in a careless, reckless or negligent manner. Additionally, there may be claims against the manufacturer, retailer or maintenance crews of any defective or malfunctioning parts on the train or railway.
