Were you injured in a LIRR or Metro-North Rail Crossing Accident?

Goldstein and Bashner | Long Island Railroad Crossing Accidents

A recent accident at a Metro-North railroad crossing claimed the lives of 6 people when a commuter train slammed into an SUV that was on the tracks. While many of the facts about the accident are still unclear, many rail workers and others say that the crossing where the accident took place was unsafe.

“Many of New York’s metropolitan-area rail crossings are truly accidents waiting to happen,” Senator Charles E. Schumer recently said. We agree. Some of the dangerous issues that can cause rail crossing accidents include:

  • Crossings obstructed by steep roads, buildings, trees or other objects
  • Defective signals
  • Malfunctioning crossing gates
  • Objects protruding from the train
  • Trains that fail to sound their horn and/or use their lights when approaching the crossing
  • Derailments
  • Train engineer negligence

Goldstein and Bashner When it comes to the capacity to generate profound upheaval and anguish in the lives of those involved, almost nothing rivals a serious personal injury event stemming from the negligence of others. The physical suffering, financial pressures and family strain that so often result from such circumstances can seem insurmountable unless justice and accountability can be obtained from those responsible.
