Norfolk, VA Light Rail Crossing Crash Injures Motorist
Railroad Claim Agents Must Provide You Your Accident Report Many railroad workers are not aware that a federal railroad regulation requires that railroads must provide you a copy of an accident report if you request it.
Norfolk officials are investigating the crash. As a Virginia personal injury lawyer, it is clear to me that there needs to be more warnings for motorists. Many people have been driving the streets of Norfolk for years without light rail and are now caught unaware by the new traffic pattern and the lack of safety gates that most people associate with railroad crossings. The best warning devices at railroad crossings are "active warning devices," which are lights activated by an approaching train, and gates that will lower automatically at the approach of a train.
