Jacksonville Train Accident Lawyer
While our Jacksonville train accidents attorneys understand that the popularity of using trains for non-commercial travel has decreased considerably over the past few decades, we also realize that trains remain an important method of commercial transport in the United States. Unfortunately, this can put motorists who use our nation’s roadways in danger. Railroad crossings, if not properly identified and/or fully functioning, can place motorists in danger of suffering a serious or even life-threatening injury if involved in an accident with a train.
Being involved in a train accident almost always causes extremely traumatic injuries or even deaths, causing those affected immeasurable grief. When another party’s negligence is responsible for causing this pain, they should be held responsible. Talk with a Jacksonville train accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Donald D. Guthrie today about whether you may be able to hold the train conductor, train company, or any other party responsible for the train accident that caused you or a loved one harm. Call us at (904) 296-1088 today to discuss your options.
