Proven, Successful Attorneys In Missouri Railroad Crossing Accidents

The Copeland Law Firm helps people and families throughout Missouri who have been devastated by serious injuries or wrongful death resulting from railroad crossing accidents caused by intentional misconduct or negligence, such as:

  • Obstructed views, such as untrimmed brush or parked train cars on adjoining tracks
  • Failure of a train to blow its warning whistle
  • Lack of whistle posts or warning signs
  • Malfunctions of railroad crossing signals

Our Missouri lawyers are familiar with all train regulations that are designed to promote railroad crossing safety. We also know how to find out when train companies deliberately or negligently violate these regulations.

For example, railroad companies always claim they sounded their warning whistle. However, we know that trains have an event data recorder, or a "black box," as we call it. Often, this will show us if, in fact, the whistle was sounded. In other words, we know where to look and what to look for.

The Copeland Law Firm knows that following a serious train accident, you have to move fast to preserve evidence. Within hours of taking your case, we will begin our investigation. Along with an experienced investigator, Mr. Copeland always investigates the scene personally to be certain the investigation is done properly.

Our Firm has established an impressive record of success in personal injury cases, and will work tirelessly to help you obtain compensation for your injuries or loss.
