Lack of Safety Gates Attorney

Railroad crossings at busy streets must be clearly marked by safety gates to help people know when and where to stop before the tracks. If these gates are improperly installed or maintained, motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians may be put at risk of collisions with powerful locomotives. Unfortunately, these train accidents are often catastrophic, and individuals injured in train collisions may be left facing life-altering consequences including permanent disabilities.

If you or someone you love has sustained an injury in a train accident that could have been prevented through adequate use of safety gates, we may be able to help you secure the compensation you need for medical care, lost wages, and other damages. To discuss your legal options in detail with a well-qualified attorney, contact the lack of safety gates lawyers of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770 today.

Dangers of Missing Safety Gates

Railroad crossing safety gates are imperative for protecting drivers and others individuals from devastating train accidents. However, railroad companies and municipal agencies sometimes fail to install and maintain these safety gates as necessary, potentially leading to the following hazards:

  • Inability to warn motorists of oncoming trains
  • Inability to indicate where traffic should stop before a railroad crossing
  • Inability to prevent drivers and other individuals from accidentally crossing in front of a locomotive

Without the benefits of a working safety gate, motorists may not know where or when to stop at a railroad crossing, drastically increasing the possibility of a collision with a train.
