Light Rail: Convenient, Efficient and Sometimes Dangerous
The light rail systems across the country have proven to be efficient and effective at moving millions of passengers. But every year, passengers are injured at rail crossings, on loading platforms and in cars. Metropolitan transit authorities have a responsibility to ensure passenger safety and the safety of people driving, walking or riding bikes near tracks and crossings.
If you were injured while riding light rail, Amtrak or another public passenger train in the Midwest or elsewhere in the United States, talk to an attorney at Humphrey, Farrington & McClain about your options for recovering full and fair money damages. We can help you protect your rights and seek damages for:
- Emergency room and hospital care
- Ongoing medical treatment and rehabilitation
- Lost wages and earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional loss, loss of enjoyment of life
- Punitive damages in cases of gross negligence
More than one party is often responsible for damages. These may include the equipment manufacturer and government agencies responsible for overseeing maintenance and supervision.
