Ferris & Salter, P.C., has handled thousands of personal injury claims since 1983, including more than 250 jury trials.

When a car is hit by a train, we investigate to identify and prove the negligence that caused the crash:

  • Defective crossing gates or malfunctioning signals
  • Failure to whistle or notify victims of an approaching train
  • Overgrown foliage obscuring lines of sight
  • Train disobeying the track speed limit

Through settlement or jury verdict, we help injury victims recover for medical bills and lost income, future earnings, pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life. We also represent surviving family members in train accidents causing death.

Our train accident attorneys have access to railroad industry and medical experts to prove liability and determine the client’s ongoing needs. Contact our firm today for a free case evaluation. We can visit victims at their home or hospital anywhere in Michigan.
