Train Accidents

OUR STRENGTH FOR YOU IS PROVIDED BY OUR COMMITMENT TO A SPECIFIC POLICY:  INSTANTLY ASSEMBLING TEAMS OF SPECIFIC EXPERTS FOR YOUR CASE'S PARTICULAR NEEDS.

When our client, Tomlin Trucking, Inc. accidentally caused the derail of a Kansas City Southern train in Buckner, Arkansas, our team of experts were on the scene within hours.
Every two hours, a person or a vehicle in the United States is hit by a train, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. Because of their heavy weight, trains are unable to stop quickly. Weighing on average 4,000 times more than the average car, a train can take one mile to come to a stop whereas a car requires only 200 feet.

Not surprisingly, catastrophic injury and death result from train accidents. We help injured Arkansans and Texans and their families hold responsible the persons or companies whose negligence or intentional act caused a train accident. Cook Law Offices, P.C., offers clients the legal advice and representation required to pursue these often-complex personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits.

The laws that govern railroad operation and accidents is complicated and there is a limit on the time to file a lawsuit. A railroad accident victim should contact an experienced railroad accident lawyer as soon as possible. Our clients appreciate the immediate, compassionate attention to their concerns that our knowledgeable and dedicated staff offer. Once our firm accepts the duty to represent the victim of a railroad accident, we carefully examine many factors that determine if the railroad company or its employee was at fault and could have prevented the accident by exercising proper care. The extent that the railroad’s actions contributed to the injuries or death must also be determined. Whether the accident results from the negligent operation of a train, unsafe railroad equipment, dangerous railroad crossings, defective lights, guards, derailment, excessive speed, failure to sound horn, drugs, alcohol, drunk driver, driver fatigue, error, improper track-crossing design and maintenance, or inadequate signage, our team can help.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a railroad accident in Texas or Arkansas, it is important to protect your legal rights to compensation. Contact Cook Law Offices, P.C., immediately for a free consultation with a Texas or Arkansas railroad accident attorney. You will receive straight answers about your case and your legal rights.

Mobilizing a team of specific experts within hours is our strength and is critical to preserving evidence.
