Arnold & Itkin’s railroad accident lawyers are currently helping a young rail worker get back on his feet after he sustained serious injuries during an accident. Our client was operating a piece of rail equipment on a stretch of track at a Texas port and was t-boned by an impatient driver of a commercial vehicle. The reckless driver unsafely attempted to cross a railroad crossing despite the oncoming rail equipment, causing our client’s equipment to derail. The incident caused our client to sustain injuries to his shoulder, back, neck, and head.
No one should suffer because of someone else’s reckless behavior. In this case, the person who caused this accident didn’t pay the steepest price for his behavior—our client did instead. Now, he requires compensation for the losses associated with his injuries, including missing wages, medical debt, and more.
Our team has a long history of fighting for clients, including those in the railroad industry. We’ll demand accountability from the companies that hired an unsafe driver and failed to install proper railroad crossing gates that could have prevented this incident.
We filed suit in Harris County, Texas.
