Light Rail and Train Accident Lawyers in Phoenix, Arizona
A public transit system can be a wonderful part of any city, but the potential for light rail and train accidents is still there. Pedestrians and drivers of vehicles can suffer serious injuries or wrongful death if they are struck by a light rail or train. Being struck by a railcar can be a physically and emotionally devastating experience. This is because some people may become handicapped or face years of physical rehabilitation.
Common Types of Light Rail and Train Accidents
These types of accidents usually involve the following:

Claims Involving Minor Children
When a minor (someone under 18 years of age) has a personal injury claim, in many cases, there is an extra set of procedures that apply to protect the interests of the minor. Specifically, the minor, usually through their attorney, will petition the probate court for approval of the minor settlement. This includes the amount of the settlement, the medical expenses to be paid from the settlement, the attorney's fees and costs, and the net settlement for the minor claimant. A more detailed explanation of this process is explained on our Minor Child Injury Pages.
Claims against Government Agencies or Public Entities
When a government or public employee or agency is negligent and causes an injury, there is a markedly different process involved as compared to a claim against an individual or private business. There is a much shorter time frame to bring a claim and a lawsuit. Therefore, there is an increased urgency to obtain legal counsel to timely submit a claim against a government agency or public entity. A more detailed explanation is available on our Government or Public Entities Claims Pages.
