If you were injured in the recent Chatsworth Train Accident or if you lost a loved one, you might need the advice of an experienced California train accident lawyer. Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys, with more than 30 years of experience fighting for the rights of the seriously injured, have successfully represented clients injured in railroad accidents, Metrolink train collisions, and train crashes throughout California.
Since the tragic Chatsworth Metrolink train accident on September 12th, the attorneys at Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys have been investigating the legal rights of the injured and their families. Although initial reports appear to place the blame on a lone engineer, the National Transportation Safety Board is still conducting its investigation, and as in all complex railroad accident cases like this one, there are many facts and variables that will need to be considered before a cause can be found.
While our immediate attention and concern is focused on the victims of the Chatsworth train accident and their families, it is important that measures be taken to insure that train accidents like these do not occur in the future. Automatic control systems can be implemented on commuter trains that override mistakes by human operators to prevent train collisions and overspeed accidents. Additionally, railroads should be required to use scientifically based principles when assigning work schedules for train crewmembers, which consider factors that impact sleep needs, to reduce the effects of fatigue in train personnel.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured as the result of a train accident or MetroLink crash in California, please contact Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys IMMEDIATELY to discuss your case. Consultations are free.
