New York City Unprotected Railroad Intersections Attorneys
Were you or a loved one injured as a result of a railroad crossing that had inadequate signage or no warning signage at all? If so, you might be owed compensation for injuries caused by an accident at an unprotected railroad intersection. As such, you may be owed significant compensation for the damages you have incurred, especially if proper signage should have been in place.
It is the responsibility of cities and municipalities to make sure that proper signage is in place at all railroad crossings. If they fail to do so, innocent people may be hurt or even killed in an accident with a train. If this happens, you should not have to deal with the consequences alone. You have the right to take legal action, and you should hire an experienced lawyer right away. Contact the experienced New York City unprotected railroad intersection accident attorneys at Hach & Rose, LLP today to speak about your case. We can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
Why You Need an Attorney
While any roadway intersection poses risks, unprotected railroad intersections pose a unique risk for drivers due to the lack of warning when the intersection is not appropriately “protected.” However, the party or parties involved in the accident will often try to put the blame on you and prevent you from obtaining the compensation you rightly deserve. This is where having an attorney is critical.
In cases involving unprotected railroad intersections, there are many variables which are taken into consideration when considering the amount of compensation that might be owed by the responsible party. Depending on the nature or underlying cause of the accident, the responding parties in a multiple party suit may even fight amongst themselves to put the blame on each other. This confusion can then lead to missteps which will lead to costly errors, ultimately preventing or diminishing your ability to recover full compensation. Hiring an attorney who knows this area of law and these types of claims will help you put your best case forward and get the results you deserve.

What to Expect in Unprotected Railroad Crossing Cases
Many people are unaware of all the parties who may be involved in the claim process after an accident involving an unprotected railroad crossing. Potential parties may be any or all of the following:
- The city, municipality, township, etc.
- The train company
- Any insurance provider for the train company
- The manufacturer of the train
- The owner of the tracks
- The driver and their insurance if there was another car involved
Sometimes these parties are hard to distinguish regarding where they fit in with your fact situation. They can also be hard to identify. Adding even more complexity to this is the fact that some parties – like the city – may have something called immunity from being sued for such accidents. It takes a skilled train accident attorney to handle complicated cases like these if the city or municipality bears some responsibility for the injuries you have sustained.
