Nashville Railroad Accident Attorney
Injured in a Railroad Crossing Accident or Train Derailment?
Railroad accidents usually result in severe injury or death. Unfortunately, many of us do not take railroad crossings very seriously. Instead, we rely on crossing signals and automatic crossbars to warn us about an oncoming train. We forget that sometimes, these safety measures fail. There are approximately 150,000 public railroad crossings in the U.S. This amounts to more than 35,000 gates, over 25,000 sets of flashing lights, and 1,200 bells and signals to maintain.
If your loved one was the victim of a fatal railroad accident due to crossing signal failure or other negligence, the train accident attorneys at Kinnard Law are here to help. With over 150 years of experience helping accident victims in Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama, our firm has the knowledge and courtroom skills necessary to handle your personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit with sensitivity and professionalism.

Help for Injured Commuters & Train Accident Victims
Train, railway, and other commuter-related accidents can be deadly. From passengers on a train to bystanders and pedestrians near a railway, some of the most serious and catastrophic injuries can result due to all types of negligent actions.

The train wreck killed 8 and injured more than 200 others after derailing.

Causes of Railroad, Train & Other Commuter Wrecks
As it can be with many accident cases, a single cause is not always the culprit in a serious train or commuter wreck.
Many times, there are a number of contributing factors, including the following:
- Negligence by the conductor, including texting, sleeping, or other distracted behavior
- Improper training or supervision of railway and other workers
- Improper or lack of maintenance of tracks and railways
- Faulty or defective equipment and train parts
- Faulty or defective signage, warning lights and other warning signals
These are just some of the many reasons that can lead to a serious commuter crash. Our firm thoroughly investigates each case to make sure all potentially negligent parties in a train accident are held liable for their actions—from individual employees of a railway company to the company itself and other businesses that maintain the railway.
Whether you were injured in a railway collision or derailment as a passenger or you are a railroad worker who was injured on the job, we are here to seek full and fair compensation on your behalf.
