Train Accident

St. Paul Railroad Crossing Accident Attorney

Injuries from railroad accidents are frequently catastrophic or fatal. When the negligence of the railroad or other party caused the accident, it is important to consult an experienced personal injury lawyer. At our St. Paul law firm, Swor & Gatto, P.A., our attorneys have nearly three decades of experience helping people obtain compensation and damages after they were injured. We know how to evaluate cases quickly and identify the liable party.

Obtaining Compensation for Client Losses and Expenses

People injured in railroad accidents often become disabled and unable to work or care for their families. They suffer devastating injuries such as head and brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis and loss of limbs. Our lawyers have been able to obtain compensation for the cost of medical treatment, durable medical equipment, home health care, adaptive devices and other expenses arising from our clients’ injuries.

We also file wrongful death claims for families whose loved one died in a railroad accident. We know that money does not compensate for the loss of a loved one. However, it does relieve families of financial worries while putting their lives back together.

Causes of Railroad Accidents

We handle railroad accident cases involving:

  • Failure of crossing arms and signals
  • Derailments
  • Poorly maintained track
  • Brake failure or other mechanical problems
  • Collisions with other trains, cars or trucks
  • Negligence of a conductor, trainman or other railroad personnel

Our Minnesota lawyers consult with experts and specialists to uncover the facts of the train accident, identify the liable party and determine the impact of the injuries on our client’s life. This allows us to build a strong case that seeks maximum compensation.
