Safety Is No Accident

Railroad accidents are often anything but accidental. When corners are cut and safety standards are not met, it is just a matter of time before someone pays for that negligence in the form of a serious injury.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a railroad accident, you need an experienced attorney backed by a firm with the resources necessary to win. At Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington, you will find a firm at the forefront of FELA railroad accident claims and improper railroad design cases in Louisville and throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Were Safety Standards Violated?

Our lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation to determine fault and then work aggressively to prove fault. This is crucial in railroad accident cases, where injured employees must prove fault. This differs from workers’ compensation cases, where benefits are “no fault.”

In order to obtain compensation under FELA, an injured worker must prove that the railroad company, other employees or the manufacturer of railroad equipment was negligent. Examples of negligence often center on safety standards being violated, such as:

  • Failure to provide a reasonably safe work environment
  • Failure to provide proper tools or safety devices
  • Failure to provide a work environment free from hazards
  • Failure to provide adequate training or supervision

We have pursued claims against well-known companies such as CSX Transportation, BNSF Railway, R.J. Corman, Canadian National Railway and more. No matter who violated safety standards in your case, we will make sure they are held accountable and that you have the compensation you need to move forward.
