Q: If I have been in a train accident, or hurt at a railroad crossing, can I sue?

A: If you have been hurt in a train accident due to negligence on the part of the train’s engineer, transportation company, or other involved party, you may be eligible for compensation for your medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Contact a lawyer at Munley Law as soon as you are able to learn more about your legal rights. Every case is different, so the best way to determine the next steps to take is to speak with an experienced attorney. At Munley Law, that initial consultation is free.

Q: What should I do immediately after a train wreck?

A: If you or your loved one have been injured in a train wreck, there are some important steps you can take to protect yourself and to help support your case later on.

  • First and foremost, seek medical treatment immediately, even if your injuries do not seem severe.
  • If you are able,  take photographs of the scene of the accident. Take photos of any visible injuries as well.
  • Write down the names and phone numbers of any witnesses on the scene.

Q: What should I do in the days following a train wreck? 

A: In the days and weeks following a train wreck or railroad crossing accident:

  • Be sure to keep track of your medical treatment. Keep a journal of any pain you experience, as well as all doctor visits, medical treatments, physical therapy sessions, and test results.
  • Keep a record of any days missed from work, and any other financial expenses you may incur.
  • Do not give a recorded statement to anyone other than  your own insurance company. Do not speak with the other party’s insurance carrier before talking to a lawyer.

Q: How much will it cost to hire a lawyer?

A: At Munley Law, we operate on a contingent fee basis. This means that we do not collect a fee (a portion of any benefits obtained on your behalf) unless we win your case. You will not have to pay anything up front or out of your own pocket. This way, everyone has access to the best possible legal representation in the event of a catastrophic event like a train wreck or railroad crossing accident.

    Marion not only is an accomplished lawyer who gets great results, but also she brings genuine compassion and zealous advocacy to each person she represents. Our firms have worked together on important cases and I look forward to future opportunities to work together. Rena Leizerman

    First, I want to tell you I hired another firm for my case before Marion, I did not choose carefully the first time is all I will say. Secondly , I would like to say that I do not give the highest rating to many people or companies without earning it. I can say Marion earned it!! She and everyone I came into contact with in her firm handled my case with the utmost professionalism, as well as true empathy for my situation, while not missing a detail about the facts of the case. I can not leave out her paralegal Janice, she was totally on the ball at all times. My case was a personal injury case ( I was hit by a tractor trailer) which was settled for a very fair settlement ! I am sure whatever your case involves, she will handle it in the same manner. She is a great person and an awesome attorney!! She will fight for you!! Jeffrey, a Personal Injury Client

    [Attorney] Munley and Munley Law have been absolutely awesome to work with. After wasting years with another firm working on my case, Munley Law was able to get me the social security disability that I deserved. You walk in to Munley Law and are greeted with a friendly smile and courtesy. They are highly confidential, well organized and extremely knowledgeable about social security disability – they really know what they are doing. They were with me every step of the way, did all of the leg work, and returned calls promptly. They assured me that if we didn’t win, we would keep fighting, because I deserved this. They were professional and courteous, and I had complete trust in them. I highly recommend Munley Law – they will fight on your behalf. Sandy, Social Security Disability Case
