What should I do after a train accident injury?


Our firm was recently contacted by a passenger who had been injured when an Amtrak train derailed outside of Columbia, South Carolina. That client asked us what steps she should take in regard to this train derailment and her injuries. If you’re reading this, you may be wondering the same, so I’ll share with you what I shared with her.

After a Train Accident

Seek medical attention immediately and follow all doctor’s orders. Also, you need to contact an attorney who has experience in train derailment cases. Find an attorney that has access to train experts that can learn the actual cause of the train derailment. Have that attorney make a claim on her behalf to the railroad. Do not speak to any representatives of the railroad before you speak with an attorney. Do not give any recorded statements to any railroad adjusters. Those adjusters are trained to get favorable information for the railroad and unfavorable information for you, the injured passenger.

If you’ve been injured as a passenger in a train derailment, give us a call. We’d be happy to help.
