How Can I Pursue a Case For Compensation After a Train Accident?
Train accident cases may be filed in state or in federal court depending on who was operating the train, where the crash occurred, and whether train operators and victims lived in different states.
In some cases, claims can be made against government agencies when they operate the train or are responsible for track maintenance. These cases may be complicated by governmental immunity rules, but an experienced Austin train accidents lawyer can help victims follow the appropriate legal steps to make their case for compensation.
