The Virginia Personal Injury Lawyers’ Perspective

When an accident occurs involving a pedestrian at a railroad crossing the results are usually very tragic. In this instance the woman likely survived the accident because the train was traveling at  a slow speed. We wish the victim a quick recovery and recommend contacting a Virginia (VA) lawyer familiar with railroad crossing injuries. This will benefit a potential claim due to the fact that police have the tendency to take the railroad company investigator's word as they are usually not familiar with railroad law . In our experience defending victims of train accidents we have been able to secure sizable settlements.
