New Mexico offers spectacular train rides throughout the beautiful state. The miles upon miles of railroad also help businesses bring in goods to the area. Despite their beauty, trains can be downright dangerous. Train accidents, such as collisions with cars and motorcycles as well as train derailments, can cause serious injuries and even death.

Most claims against traditional railroads and “light rail” companies involve a failure to warn of impending danger. The classic example regarding a failure to warn is when the train “arms” at a railroad crossing do not timely deploy to block traffic and notify vehicle drivers that a train is oncoming. Another example occurs when a conductor does not “pull his horn” and notify drivers that he is approaching an intersection. Regardless, people who have been injured in railroad accidents typically face catastrophic injuries given the inherently violent nature of a train collision.

New Mexico train accident cases typically involve a higher degree of expertise due to their complexity. For example, permanent disfigurement may require a life care plan tailored to your unique circumstances. There may also be substantial future medical care costs associated with your injuries. Typically, experts are needed to prove up these claims. In conjunction with our own expertise, we will ensure we have the right experts on your case in order to successfully prove up both the liability and injury claim.
