Railroad Accident Lawyers

Holding Train & Railroad Companies Accountable for Accidents They Cause

In 2019, the Federal Railroad Administration reported that the nation had 1,848 train accidents. This means that there are about 3 accidents per million train miles traveled in the United States. Due to the size and speed of the average train, any accident involving one can seriously injure or kill dozens of people at once. Arnold & Itkin has been at the forefront of investigating many of those accidents. We’ve recovered $10 billion for the victims of life-altering disasters nationwide, getting our clients medical care, replacing their lost wages, and helping them face the future with confidence.

Our firm has won major settlements and verdicts for victims of:

  • Hazardous material exposure
  • Train derailments
  • Conductor negligence
  • Railroad crossing accidents
  • Railroad worker injuries

Train accident survivors are facing the worst circumstances of their lives. It’s our firm’s duty to not only provide aggressive representation, but to ensure our clients get the best care and largest recovery possible. The stakes are high: the money we win for our clients is often all they’ll have to live on for the rest of their lives. That’s why we won’t stop until we’ve reached the best result. No matter what.

No Matter How Tough
the Fight.

Industrial shipping is built on the nation’s railroad network, but when companies prioritize profit over safety or maintenance, people get hurt. Our job is making sure those people have everything they need to get back on their feet while forcing the companies at fault to change their behavior. We love a challenge because it represents a chance to make our clients’ lives better. That’s why we never stop fighting. No matter what.

I would recommend Arnold & Itkin to anyone that has a work-related injury, a personal injury, or any type of injury. I would definitely recommend them because they are the best.

Past clients often send us Christmas cards, even years after their cases have resolved. It goes to show that the bonds you build as someone’s advocate never go away. When you spend months getting to know someone’s life, their struggles, their fears, their hopes, and their passions, their cases stop being "just cases." They become personal, and winning becomes non-negotiable. That’s how clients become family at Arnold & Itkin.

No Matter How Big They Are.

Railroad companies are some of the oldest, most powerful organizations in the world. Railroad giants have near-limitless resources and patience, giving them a huge legal advantage. Our firm takes away that advantage. We’re not intimidated or impressed by railroad companies because we have the creativity, resources, and experience to level the playing field for our clients. That’s why we’ve been able to beat them time and time again.

Challenge.

  • Kurt Arnold
    "Always bet on justice. It takes a lot of time and resources to win a case against big defendants, and some cases are easier to win than others. But this doesn’t matter at Arnold & Itkin. We take the cases that we must win because it’s the right thing, the ones we have to win—even if it’s hard. Especially if it’s hard."

Our secret to winning is this:
we’re never afraid to put in the work.

You’re facing the biggest fight of your life. We don’t have the option to go halfway or be half-committed. If we’re going to fight for you, we’re going all the way. We spare no resource, work around the clock, and push ourselves to the brink. We win because while our opponents can outnumber us or outspend us, they’ve never outworked us.

No Matter How Big the
News Story.

If an accident makes the news, we get the call. People entrust us with the country’s biggest cases because they know we’ve been in these situations before. We fought and won for the crew of the Deepwater Horizon, the victims of Johnson & Johnson’s faulty medication, and the workers who lived through the nation’s biggest plant explosions. People call us because we know what it’s like to have lives hanging in the balance, and we’re not afraid to take that responsibility on our backs. No matter what.

No Matter What Questions

No Matter the Situation.

You might be facing the worst circumstances of your life right now. We understand because we’ve walked through it with people in similar (or even identical) situations. We helped them get the care they need, gave them advice about how to move forward, talked them through what to expect, and pulled them back onto their feet. That’s what it means to fight for someone. We’ve secured more than $10 billion for our clients, which is only possible because we take every story personally. No matter what.
