Railroad Crossing Accidents

Focused on Client Needs Since 1946


Because Railroad Crossing Injuries Are Often Catastrophic

When a dangerous railroad crossing causes an accident, fast action by an experienced team of personal injury attorneys and investigators can make a critical difference in discovering all the causes of the accident and obtaining just financial recovery for the victims and their families.

Railroad Crossing Accidents

At Gray, Ritter & Graham in St. Louis, our lawyers obtain compensation for people who have been injured in railroad crossing accidents. Crossing accidents can result from numerous potential causes.

  • Defective crossing signals — including no gates or lights and excessive foliage — can make an oncoming train hard to see. It is important to document the accident scene before it is cleaned up by the railroad company.
  • In rural areas, a train’s failure to sound its horn can cause an accident, especially when there is no gate. Many railroad crossings have only lights or crossbucks. Sight lines may make the crossing or the train difficult to see. In some cases, private crossings are maintained by property owners rather than the railroad.
  • If a loved one was injured or killed by a train, talk to an experienced GRG lawyer to make sure the evidence is preserved so that the crossing accident can be carefully investigated.
