First of all, I am sorry for your loss. Secondly, you really need to contact a local wrongful death attorney, so that they can review your case. It's hard for anyone in this forum to give you a yes/no answer without knowing all of the facts.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss, and respectfully offer my condolence. As has always been said, the parent should not outlive the child. Georgia, I believe, has a 2 year statute of limitations in which to bring a wrongful death claim, so you should act as quickly to consult with a local persona injury attorney. But, consult with one who has experience bringing claims involving railroad claims. They are special creatures which involve not only State/local law, but also federal statutes and guidelines. By now, there should have been a governmental investigation into the accident, its cause, etc. Your attorney will need as much time as possible to get his/her hands on it. Good Luck.Ask a similar question

I am so sorry for your loss. That is a terrible thing to have to go through.
The best thing for you to do is contact your local bar association for a recommendation on an attorney who can advise you in this situation. It appears that it might be a difficult case to win, but personal injury attorneys take possible wrongful death cases very seriously. So if there is a case to be made there, you can rest assured that they will make it. Furthermore, most personal injury cases will not charge you anything for a free phone consultation. Therefore, there is no harm in you talking to an attorney to see what your options are.
My deepest condolences to your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you through this hard time.Ask a similar question

I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I have 3 sons and cannot imagine the pain with such a loss. As to the possible case, I could not tell if the gates went down before the accident or not. There are other issues, and a large gap in the facts as you recited them as well, that need investigation and exploration before you will get definitive answers. To get the answers you seek, engage an experienced wrongful death attorney in the area where the accident happened. The attorney can do the investigation and gather the information needed to evaluate this properly. They may even have an in-house investigator to move on this quickly. It is important that you get this done as soon as possible to preserve information and evidence. Good luck to you and God bless you and your family.Ask a similar question

I am sorry for your very unfortunate tragedy. You need to have an experienced wrongful death arty. Review all if the investigative reports and perhaps conduct a reconstruction of the event to develop a greater degree of understanding and certainty as to how the incident actually occurred and whether there was actionable negligence involved. This would also involve a determination regarding any contributory negligence by your son, if applicable. Some states do not permit a suit if there was ANY contributory negligence. Other states apportion the damages among the parties. You should consult a wrongful death arty. in your state ASAP to make sure you do not miss any statute of limitations time restrictions.
recovery then could an atty. give a reasonable answer to your question.
