Railroad Accidents


Despite extensive federal and state regulations, railroads and trains continue to be responsible for killing and seriously injuring numerous victims every year.  Accidents can take place at train crossings, on platforms, or on board passenger cars.  In addition, the Chicago area is home to the elevated subway, and serious personal injuries occur on the “L” every year. 

Every injury involving public transit is a special case, and accident victims should be diligent in initiating proceedings as quickly as possible.  The statute of limitations in some cases may be less than a year from the date that the injuries were sustained.  The attorneys at Coffman Law Offices will help you to understand the law and the statute of limitations applicable to your case and will ensure that the necessary filing is done within the statutory framework to prevent your cause of action from being time barred.  Call today to arrange a free consultation.
