Why should I consider your firm?

Besides our extensive knowledge on train accident litigation, we use every train accident as a way of advocating for the railroad to stop ignoring public safety and legislation so these types of accidents don€™t happen to others. What happened in Biloxi was likely an avoidable accident. News stories are still coming in, but the charter bus likely became lodged on the crossing due to the severe hump at this crossing. This was not an unknown problem to CSX or city officials. Federal Railroad Administration records reveal that there have been at least 16 prior accidents at this crossing, with at least 5 of those being vehicles stuck on the tracks. If CSX or the city would have fixed this hazardous condition in the middle of the city after any one of the prior accidents, this tragedy could have been prevented. By hiring us to help you with your case, you not only will get the compensation that belongs to you as a right, you will also be aiding us to advocate for better laws that prevent anything like this from happening to others in the country.
