Santa Clarita Train Accident Lawyers
Fighting for Catastrophically Injured Victims for Over 40 Years
Train accidents are not as common as car accidents. However, when they do occur, they can lead to catastrophic injuries and, in severe cases, death. The speed, force, and weight of a train can lead to a larger impact than that of other motor vehicles.
Whether because of defective railroad crossings, equipment malfunction, or other foreseeable circumstances, if someone is injured in a train accident, they may be entitled to compensation. This is where a train accident attorney comes into play.
At the Law Offices of C. Ray Carlson, our Santa Clarita train accident lawyers have been fighting on behalf of catastrophically injured victims and their families since 1980. In our decades in practice, we have successfully secured millions of dollars for our clients, allowing individuals and families to get back on their feet and move forward in the wake of devastating accidents. We are here to listen to your story and share how we can help you fight for the maximum recovery you are owed.

Common Causes of Train Accidents
Some common causes of train accidents include:
- Collisions with other vehicles or objects
- Unsafe crossings
- Improper supervision
- Negligent hiring
- Defective construction
- Defective trains/train parts
- Unsafe speeds
- Defective guardrails and other safety features at crossings
- Inattentive, distracted, and otherwise negligent train operators
Our Santa Clarita train accident lawyers have knowledge of the regulations required by the state of California to make sure that all train crossings are safe, as well as laws governing proper train operation. Defectively-designed crossings, inattentive train operation, or improper speed can all lead to train accidents.
Representation for Injured Train Workers
Anyone who has worked on a railroad or a train knows how dangerous it can be. If you’ve been injured while working, you can file for compensation through the Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA) with one of our experienced train worker injury attorneys in Santa Clarita.
Allow one of our lawyers to handle the specifics of your case. We have the resources needed to investigate these types of accidents and to determine if the train or railroad company’s negligence in some way caused your accident. If this is the case, you are likely eligible to receive compensation.
