Why You Need An Experienced Attorney
When someone is injured because of a railroad accident, the railroads’ first priority is self-protection. Railroads anticipate and tolerate a certain number of injuries. The railroads’ first reaction is to investigate the accident for its own purposes, to protect its interests. Claims agents and attorneys use the evidence they obtain from an investigation to support the railroad’s side, not to support the health or financial needs of the injured person.
