Railroad Accidents
Timothy Shay

Railroad Accident Attorney In Springfield
And Decatur, Illinois

Fighting a railroad company after an accident can be a complicated case, primarily since it can sometimes involve numerous federal regulations. At Shay & Associates Law Firm, we have the resources and the professional legal teams to invest in uncovering the truth – and if necessary, to take such cases to court. Railroad companies typically blame the driver of the automobile for most every accident involving a train and a passenger car. In a train crash, it might not always be the fault of the engineer. It might be the fault of unmaintained tracks that cause the unit to derail, and in these cases, the burden of proof, as well as the evidence of neglect and the guilty party, can be a very gray area.

Knowledge, Skills, And Expertise

Our team of injury experts will work tirelessly to defend and protect your interests even in the extreme cases of railroad accidents. Your benefits are our top priority, and we won’t collect our fee until we get the maximum in restitution funds for you.
