Train / Commuter Wrecks in Nashville, TN

Protecting Injured Commuters & Train Accident Victims

Train, railway, and other commuter-related accidents can be deadly. From passengers on a train to bystanders and pedestrians near a railway, some of the most serious and catastrophic injuries can result due to all types of negligent actions. In 2015, one of the worst commuter train wrecks in U.S. history occurred on an Amtrak route from Philadelphia to New York. The train wreck killed 8 and injured more than 200 others after derailing.

At Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge, we believe in protecting the rights of those injured or killed in such accidents. With extensive experience and a track record that speaks for itself, our dedicated and thorough personal injury lawyers are here to help you and your family every step of the way. If you or a loved one was injured or killed in a train or commuter accident, please reach out to our law firm in Nashville, Tennessee.

Causes of Railroad, Train & Other Commuter Wrecks

As it can be with many accident cases, a single cause is not always the culprit in a serious train or commuter wreck. Many times, there are a number of contributing factors, including the following:

  • Negligence by the conductor, including texting, sleeping or other distractive behavior
  • Improper training or supervision of railway and other workers
  • Improper or lack of maintenance of tracks and railways
  • Faulty or defective equipment and train parts
  • Faulty or defective signage, warning lights and other warning signals

These are just some of the many reasons that can lead to a serious commuter crash. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate each case to make sure all potentially negligent parties in a train accident are held liable for their actions—from individual employees of a railway company to the company itself and other businesses that maintain the railway. Whether you were injured in a railway collision or derailment as a passenger or you are a railroad worker who was injured on the job, we are here to seek full and fair compensation on your behalf.
