Addressing the danger of railroad and shipping accidents

Many people in Illinois may be familiar with some of the basics of the typical personal injury case, but railroad and shipping accidents can present a whole other level of complexity. Car accidents are one thing, but an accident that occurred in a railroad or shipping situation can include different types of laws than the average personal injury case. They will also definitely different factual scenarios which, if the case goes all the way to trial, will likely be wholly unfamiliar to potential members of the jury.

As a result, familiarity with these types of cases and the laws that may apply can make or break an accident victim's chances of success in a potential lawsuit. At our law firm, we can offer our clients decades of collective experience between our attorneys with railroad and shipping accident cases, the fact patterns that may be present in any given case and the laws that may apply. Victims of these types of accidents are already suffering, so at our law firm, we make it our job to present our clients' cases as efficiently and expeditiously as possible to get the clients the compensation they deserve.

For starters, we will need to analyze the facts of the case: What type of railroad accident was it? If it was a maritime accident, did it occur on the Mississippi River? At a shipyard? On a dock or pier? Any particular fact among many in the situation may determine the strategy and outcome in the case.

These facts are important because different facts may mean that different laws apply. At our law firm, we take the time to understand our clients' cases and how they were affected by the accident and resultant injuries.
