What are the types of transit accidents handled by Vishno Law Firm?

Transit accidents happen fast. People can easily slip and fall on train platforms in Stamford and suffer brain injuries. Sometimes people fall victim to violent attacks on trains in Bridgeport due to negligent security. Others may be involved in a crash, perhaps caused by an impaired, fatigued or distracted driver, while riding on a train bound for New York City, New Haven or any other destination across southern Connecticut. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, the legal implications and liability can be quite complex.

How do transit accidents happen? The following are some common factors:

  • Drug or alcohol impaired drivers
  • Distracted drivers
  • Driver fatigue
  • Mechanical errors
  • Track errors
  • Negligent security
  • Derailment
  • Closing doors

Can a Fairfield County train accident lawyer help me?

A train accident can have a serious impact on injury victims and their families for years to come. In an instant, you may find yourself facing a long and painful recovery process. You may be unable to work and have no way to pay for medical expenses.

To make matters worse, the insurance company might delay your claim, deny your claim, or even try to say you caused an accident to minimize the train operator's liability. Depending on the legal circumstances of your case, multiple responsible parties might be involved, each with their own insurance. Accepting a settlement offer from one insurer can affect every insurer's liability, meaning you'll have no way to claim the compensation you need to cover all of your expenses.

It's important you know your legal rights. Without a skilled attorney at your side, you will be at the mercy of the insurance company. With a capable attorney, however, you'll be able to build a strong case and recover all of the damages you need to move forward.

Your case is more than about money. It's about closure. It's about holding negligent people accountable for their actions. It's about making sure similar accidents don't happen to other passengers in the future.
