Train Accidents

New Orleans Train Accident Lawyer

Our Legal Team Will Fight for You

If you work in any part of the railroad industry,you are well-aware of the many job-related problems and hazards that you must face on a daily basis. Just going to work, day-in and day-out, can present serious risks to your health and life. Regardless of the dangers, your employer is required by law to ensure its employees have a safe and secure work environment that is reasonably free from direct harm.

Railroad injuries may include the following:

These injuries are typically sustained in common railroad accidents:

  • Train derailment accident
  • Highway-rail accidents
  • Train-train collisions
  • Single-train accidents

Keep in mind that some injuries may not present themselves immediately. In fact, some symptoms of railroad injuries may take months or years to be fully be revealed.

Do not wait until it is too late to take legal action.

If, at any point during your employment with a railroad company, you begin to suspect that you have sustained a work-related injury, consult a skilled New Orleans personal injury lawyer from The Voorhies Law Firm.
