Train Accidents

Train Accidents

Have you or a family member suffered an injury or loss of life as the result of an incident involving a train? If so, you have the right to financial compensation. You owe it to yourself to retain the sound counsel of a highly competent attorney well versed in personal injury claims and litigation. The skilled personal injury attorneys at Malamut & Associates can help you.

Although train transportation is thought to be one of the safest forms of travel, national statistics suggest an accident involving a train occurs every two to three hours in the United States. Many of these incidents result in serious injury or death, such as 2015’s Amtrak Train 188 derailment in Philadelphia that killed eight and injured 200 individuals. An analysis of federal rail data by NJ Advance Media shows that 58% of the 611 train derailments that have occurred in New Jersey over the past 20 years have been caused by human error. New Jersey is twice the national rate and far higher than any other state in the country.[1]

At Malamut & Associates, we know how life altering a debilitating injury or the loss of a family member can be. Contacting the right attorney as soon as possible will help to ensure your rights are protected. We recommend that you do not give a statement to the transportation company’s insurance carrier prior to speaking with our highly competent attorneys. The transportation company’s insurance carrier is a business whose job it is to make and save money. They do not always have a victim or their family’s best interests in mind when evaluating a claim. Our meticulous attention to detail will give you time to heal, while we compile and present the best case possible on your behalf. We offer free consultations in person at our office in Cherry Hill, NJ, or we can come to you. Contact Malamut & Associates today to schedule your free consultation. We look forward to meeting you.

Some Examples of Train Injury Cases Include:
  • Pedestrian Impact

  • Derailments

  • Overloaded Cargo
