Birmingham Lack of Safety Gates Attorney
Railroad crossings are highly dangerous intersections. According to the US Department of Transportation, nearly 6,000 car-train collisions occur each year in the United States. These accidents most often occur at railroad crossings. Since the danger of this type of accident is well-recognized, safety gates are typically provided at all railroad crossings and descend at the proper time in order to alert the drivers of an oncoming train.
In some instances, however, the safety gates are absent or may be functioning improperly. If you or someone you know has been the victim of a train collision due to a lack of safety gates, contact us immediately. We may be able to help you get the financial compensation you need to help with medical bills, lost wages, and other financial difficulties.
