Train Accidents

With over 50 combined years of litigation practice, Golightly & Vannah offer their clients the representation and legal advice necessary to pursue complicated injuries, wrongful death, and personal injury lawsuits resulting from train accidents. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, a vehicle or person is hit by a train every two hours in the U.S. Trains are unable to stop quickly due to their heavy weight, which on average is 4,000 times more than the average automobile. Unfortunately, terrible injury and death can result from train accidents. The attorneys at Golightly & Vannah have helped injured Nevadans and their families hold the companies and persons responsible for negligent or intentional acts that cause train accidents.

Victim of a railroad accident should contact our experienced Reno railroad accident attorneys immediately. The laws that preside over railroad operation and accidents are complex, and there is a time limit to file a lawsuit. Our clients benefit from prompt attention to their concerns, well-informed attorneys, and committed support from our bilingual staff. Once our firm agrees to represent the injured victim(s) of a railroad accident, we thoroughly examine all the factors to determine if the railroad employee or company is at fault, and if they could have prevented the accident by exercising appropriate actions. The extent of the injuries or death caused by the railroad company must be determined as well. Golightly & Vannah can help Nevadans injured as a result of negligent operation of a train, hazardous railroad crossings, unsafe railroad equipment, defective guards or lights, or excessive speed.
