Kansas City Improperly Maintained Railroad Tracks Lawyers

Railroads are arteries for passenger and commercial travel across the nation. They pass through urban, suburban, and rural areas, intersecting with roads all along the way. Rails at crossings must be strong enough to withstand not only the weight and speed of trains, but also the pressures of vehicles that drive over the crossings. Over time, wear and tear can strain, warp, and break the metal and wood of railroad tracks.

The maintainers of railroad tracks, whether railroad companies or municipalities, may be liable for injuries that occur due to poorly maintained tracks. If you or someone close to you has been injured as a result of deteriorating train tracks, call 816-531-6006 to speak with the Kansas City injury lawyers of The Pottenger Law Firm LLC. We understand the consequences of this serious problem and are dedicated to seeking justice for our clients.

Dangers of Improperly Maintained Railroad Tracks

Here in Kansas City, railroad crossings are especially common. Many of us drive over them every day and do not give them a second thought. But railroad tracks have many parts that can become damaged and cause accidents and injuries. The metal can break and create a sharp, jagged edge. The wood can warp, and bolts and ties can come loose. When this happens, a variety of injuries can result. We can help if an improperly maintained railroad track has caused you to suffer an accident leading to medical problems such as:

  • Whiplash
  • Fractures
  • Concussion
  • Wounds from sharp objects such as nails, splinters, and jagged edges

Whatever the injury, you should not have to suffer or pay for the mistakes of a negligent railroad company or municipality. An experienced attorney can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
