  1. Best answer

    There is always a chance that a case can be won, especially depending upon the train's knowledge of your presence, the time of day and how you were injured. Don't give up just because other lawyers are not interested in your case. The first thing we need to do is preserve the evidence by sending a letter to the company and police to save any videos/pictures. Next, we need to obtain your medical records to evaluate the value of your case and make a demand. If you have any questions or just want to know your rights please do not hesitate to call or add a comment.

  6. Without more information about the facts of your case, I cannot comment about whether the rail-company can be held liable.

  8. I agree with the other attorneys that more information is needed to answer your question. Contact a local attorney who specializes in personal injury lawsuits.


  9. Of course, there is always a "chance to win" such a suit; however, the key is to know the factual details surrounding the accident. Was the person already on the bridge when the train approached? How far away was the train when the pedestrian saw it? What efforts were made to stop the train and when? A litany of other questions will need to be answered before the relative strength of the claim can be evaluated.
