Helping Those Impacted by Catastrophic Railroad Accidents in Texas & Nationwide

In 2021, the Federal Railroad Administration reported 6,688 total railroad accidents. This number includes 1,098 train accidents, 1,530 highway-rail incidents, and 4,040 "other incidents." In all, these railroad accidents caused 644 fatalities and 4,195 injuries. Due to the size and speed of an average train, any railway accident can have catastrophic consequences for numerous people.

Arnold & Itkin has been at the forefront of investigating train accidents and other disasters. We’ve recovered over $10 billion for the victims of life-altering catastrophes nationwide, getting our clients medical care, replacing their lost wages, and helping them face the future with confidence.

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.

Train Accidents & Safety

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.

Past clients often send us holiday 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 is non-negotiable. That’s how clients become family at Arnold & Itkin.
