Hurt In A Train Accident?
Believe it or not, more than 3,000 train accidents happen every year.
Under California law, trains fall under the category of a “common carrier” because they offer transportation to the general public for profit.
But Remember This
As a common carrier, trains must use the highest care and diligence of a very cautious person when transporting passengers, which means that they must do all that is necessary under the circumstances to avoid injury or harm to their passengers.
Here Is The Reason Why…
Train accident attorney Mason Rashtian of The Mason Law Firm understands the obligations placed on common carriers, such as train operators. He helps victims of train accidents and collisions (such as Metrolink trains and AMTRAK trains) keep train operators accountable for their negligent or careless conduct.
Here’s the real kicker: Every year, thousands of train accidents occur throughout the United States. Some of these train collisions can be attributed to train engineer’s negligence, some to inadequate rail maintenance and some to unsafe operators. Many of these accidents involve train collisions and motor vehicles on track.

Falls On Trains And At Train Stations
Not all train accidents involve a collision. Many falls also occur on trains or at train stations. These include trip-and-falls over objects left in walkways and slip-and-falls on spilled fluids. These falls can lead to broken wrists and other bones or even traumatic brain injuries. Train service providers are expected to maintain their premises in order to keep riders safe. If the fall is the result of negligence on the part of Metrolink or AMTRAK, the victim may be entitled to compensation for medical bills and other costs.
There is never a fee unless there is recovery in the case.
