Increase In Railroad Traffic May Increase Rail Road Crossing Injuries
As a Virginia (VA) and North Carolina (NC) railroad accident attorney I know that personal injuries and even deaths do occur at public railroad crossings and many different federal regulations impact on the duties and responsibilities not only of a railroad crew, but respecting the warnings that must be provided by a railroad to cars or trucks that are crossing the railroad track. I hope with the increase in traffic Norfolk Southern also increases the number of safety precautions at railroad crossings.
Recently a man was found dead in Norfolk, Virginia (VA) next to a railroad crossing and the accident is still being investigated. The economic impact may be beneficial to the area but the danger at these crossings is real. Our firm has been proud to help families harmed by railroad companies' neglect and wrongdoing at grade crossings in Virginia and beyond.
