Why Do You Need a Train Accident Lawyer?
Train company insurers often try to take advantage of claimants – especially claimants without lawyers. Trying to conduct insurance negotiations or other legal processes on your own, while nursing serious injuries, could lead to the insurer taking advantage of you. Hiring a lawyer, on the other hand, gives you the resources, insights, and knowledge to protect your rights as a victim. Train accidents are complex. Optimize your odds of financial recovery by retaining an experienced train accident attorney in Albuquerque.
Who Can I Pursue for Compensation?
Identifying the at-fault party is one of the first steps in obtaining compensation for your personal injuries. In a train accident, the at-fault party could be the train company (e.g., a scenic train ride company, Rail Runner Express, zoo trains, Amtrak, etc.). The company may bear fault for an accident if it was negligent in some way.
- If the company failed to inspect or repair train cars.
- If the company hired incompetent train conductors or other workers.
- If the company waited too long to remedy a hazard, such as a wet floor.
The train company could also be vicariously at fault for the actions or negligence of its employees. Third parties, such as other train passengers and outside drivers, may also bear fault for your accident. A lawyer can investigate your train accident and determine the identity of the at-fault party on your behalf.
What Damages Can I Recover?
The New Mexico civil justice system gives train crash victims the right to seek recovery for several economic and non-economic damages. A successful personal injury claim could result in payment for these damages:
- Past and future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Property damage
- Lost quality of life
If you lost a loved one in a train accident, your family could be eligible for additional wrongful death damages, such as restitution for reasonable funeral and burial costs. The more severe your injuries, the more money your case is likely worth. A consultation with a train accident lawyer can help determine the value of your specific case.
