Despite warning signs, cars and trains collide at railroad crossings. Passengers and bystanders can get badly hurt while utilizing public transit systems. No matter how safe we try to be around trains and public transit systems, accidents can be caused by careless actions on the part of the train company or train operators.

At Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC, in Charlotte, we offer more than five decades of combined experience with personal injury litigation in North Carolina. Our attorneys are dedicated advocates with the reputation for providing full assistance to our injured clients.

Experience allows us to provide exceptional representation to individuals who have suffered injuries in accidents involving trains (e.g., Norfolk Southern, CSX, Amtrak) and public transit systems such as Charlotte Area Transit System and the LYNX light rail train system. The attorneys at Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC, have obtained record-setting jury verdicts and settlements involving car/train accidents.

Successful Results in Train Accident Cases

We obtained a $15.7 million jury verdict on behalf of a client whose car was struck by a train that failed to sound its horn at a railroad crossing with an inadequate guard. We obtained a $2.5 million settlement in another case where our client was injured under similar circumstances. Read more about our record of successful cases.

Train Accidents Involve Complex Laws and Multiple Defendants

There is a huge difference between a two-car fender bender and a catastrophic accident between a passenger car and a freight train. Almost without exception, the injuries in a train accident are more serious. Oftentimes, federal law and unique rules apply to train accidents. Through our several decades of experience in litigating against the major train companies operating in North Carolina, we have gained much knowledge of their operating rules and maintenance procedures, as well as the unique laws applicable to automobile/train accidents.

Train accident victims deserve focused attention to their case from attorneys with extensive firsthand experience successfully litigating train accident cases. At Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC, we offer that experience.

Injuries Involving Train Employees

Our law firm also has substantial experience representing railroad employees who are injured in the course of their employment. Such cases involve the special workers’ compensation rules set forth in the Federal Employees Liability Act (FELA).

Successful Results in FELA Cases

We obtained a 1.5 Million Dollar verdict on behalf of an employee of a major train company who fell at a work site while attending a company meeting.
