At King Law, you have the option to do either one, without needing to shop around for legal representation.

Compensation After a Train Accident

When a train derails or collides with another engine, passengers aboard the train can do very little to protect themselves from harm. Without any safety restraints and often no warning about the imminent crash, passengers may suffer serious injuries, or even death. The outcome is almost-always catastrophic and the damage is widespread. Recuperation can take months or years, and the medical bills will pile up all the while.

You should be able to receive compensation that helps pay for:

  • Initial emergency medical bills
  • Ongoing hospital costs and rehabilitation
  • Lost wages and reduced income
  • Emotional trauma from the violence of the crash

Your Lawsuit Compared to a Class Action

Most personal injury lawsuits involve one plaintiff going up against one defendant or defendant group, such as an entire company. If your injuries after a train accident are unique, or if not many passengers were actually injured, you may only need to use an individual civil lawsuit to collect compensation.

For most transportation accidents, however, class actions are required. In a class action, one personal injury attorney will file a single lawsuit on behalf of multiple people who were all hurt by the same event, such as a train accident. When the case concludes, if successful, the winnings will be distributed evenly among all plaintiffs.
