Since 1985, the Wisconsin personal injury lawyers at Cannon & Dunphy S.C. S.C. have helped accident victims and their families recover full and fair compensation for medical expenses, noneconomic damages, wrongful death, and more.

Train Accident Causes & Liability
“Train accident” can refer to any railroad accident that involves a pedestrian, car, vehicle, or another train. Common types of train accidents include:
- Railroad crossing collisions
- Train and vehicle accidents
- Derailment accidents
- Accidents involving two trains
- Pedestrian / bystander and train accidents
In order to collect the money you need and deserve, you must demonstrate negligence. In other words, you must prove that someone else’s careless or negligent behavior (or lack of action) is responsible for your injury. Without this causation, it may be impossible to recover compensation.
Three steps to prove personal injury liability:
- The defendant was somehow responsible for your well-being (called “duty of care”)
- The defendant acted negligently, ignored his/her duty of care, and caused the accident
- The accident was directly responsible for your injuries, loss, or other damages
What to Do After an Accident
Contacting a legal advocate is the first step toward compensation for your damages. With the help of a Milwaukee train accident attorney, you can seek money for medical expenses, ongoing medical care (such as physical therapy), wrongful death, funerary expense, pain and suffering, and additional noneconomic damages.
