Traveling by AMTRAK or other regional rail service is one of the safest ways to travel. According to the National Transportation Safety Board, railroad accidents accounted for less than 1% of all transportation deaths in 2013. And the Federal Railroad Administration reports that only 14 train accidents occurred in 2014 in all of Pennsylvania. However, with over 350 million passengers taking AMTRAK, New Jersey Transit, and SEPTA each year, train accidents do occur and there is a high potential for serious personal injuries and even death.

The law firm of Kats, Jamison & Associates is capable of handling complicated personal injury cases, such as the AMTRAK derailment that occurring on May 13th 2015.

Pursuing financial compensation for an AMTRAK accident or other train accident case requires knowledge of specific laws governing mass transit. The investigation may become complex and will require professional attention. To get maximum compensation for personal injuries suffered during a train accident, the victims must demonstrate that the operating company (AMTRAK/ NJ Transit/ SEPTA) was negligent.

In seeking to receive the maximum compensation for our clients, our AMTRAK train accident lawyers will investigate all of the following points:

  • Employees training procedures

  • Drug and alcohol abuse among employees

  • Equipment use guidelines

  • Maintenance schedules

  • Cell phone use of employees

  • Safe work conditions procedures and practices

  • Issues with over-worked employees

  • Inspection frequency
