Railroad and Train Accidents

Bolt Hoffer Boyd Law Firm offers expertise in handling railroad and train accident cases across the country. We represent victims and the families of those injured or killed in railroad accidents in over thirty jurisdictions. With a strong belief that focusing attention on public safety and engineering solutions to railroad dangers will help not only victims and their families, but make railroads safer for the general public and for railroad workers.

Forcing railroads to improve safety or face consequences is a highly personal mission for our lead railroad attorney, Joe Sayler, as he lost a brother in a railroad accident.

A dedicated group of Bolt Hoffer Boyd attorneys exclusively handle railroad cases, unlike most law firms advertising this service. In fact, because of our extensive resources and highly specialized experience, many firms refer railroad cases to us.

Most railroad and train accidents, many of them catastrophic, could be prevented if railroads would implement basic safety systems and measures. Thousands of railroad accidents, injuries, and deaths occur every year. These accidents include pedestrian train accidents, railroad crossings accidents, railroad worker injuries under FELA, derailments, train passenger injuries, and many others.

The experienced railroad lawyers of Bolt Hoffer Boyd have the skills and drive necessary to prove that your railroad injury was caused by a negligent railroad carrier and protect your rights. Because no two cases are alike, we tailor our legal representation to the specific facts of a client’s claim. We are 100 percent dedicated to every client we take on, no matter how big or small the case. We handle each case with care and a commitment to the best possible resolution, including appropriate compensation.

We believe that our work and advocacy has made a difference, and we’ll continue our pursuit to make railroads safer.
