Selecting The Right Train Accident Lawyer
If you or a loved one has been injured in a train accident, it is likely going to be in your best interests to at the very least consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. Corporations such as Amtrak employ an army of legal experts whose sole duty is to reduce their employer's liability and financial responsibility after catastrophic disasters. Representatives from Amtrak and their insurers will contact accident victims immediately after an accident to gather statements and attempt to settle claims quickly and at a lower level than the victims ultimately deserve.
Our award-winning attorneys understand the many settlement tactics that these companies engage in and are ready to defend innocent victims' legal rights. No one should settle a serious personal injury claim without understanding their legal rights and t
he true nature of their injuries. Insurance companies often try to settle claims quickly, before injured victims are aware of how serious their injuries are and how long it might take to recover from those injuries.
Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which mea
ns there are no up-front costs associated with hiring us and our clients only owe legal fees after we have successfully resolved the case. We also offer a free case review and legal consultation, so there is no obligation to hire us if you simply want to learn more about your rights and how we might be able to help. Call (206) 727-4000 or use the confidential contact form on this page to get started.
