Helping the Injured and Their Families Since 1972

Each railroad accident is different and many different factors can contribute to the cause. Who was negligent, the driver of a motor vehicle, a pedestrian, the operator of the train, the railroad or another party? Was the railroad crossing safe or was it in need of maintenance and repair? And, how can you prove damages and negotiate or litigate for the compensation you deserve?

The attorneys of the personal injury law firm of Clay, Massey & Associates, P.C., have successfully handled dozens of cases for:

  • Motor vehicle drivers
  • Pedestrians
  • Railroad workers, including yard workers, engineers and conductors

We have handled cases involving a broad range of circumstances and types of negligence, including:

  • Crossing accidents involving improper signaling and defective signals
  • Injuries from crushing, injuries involving loss of limb, spine and head injuries, wrongful death and other injuries
  • Accidents occurring in switch yards, including injuries involving distracting and deafening noise

Fighting for Victims’ Rights in Alabama’s Biggest Train Accident

One of our most notable train crash cases occurred in 1993 when we handled several injury cases resulting from the Amtrak crash known as “The Sunset Limited Crash” and “The Big Bayou Canot Train Wreck”. The crash occurred when a tugboat struck a railroad bridge resulting in 47 deaths and receiving extensive national coverage.

Our investigation and representation resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation for our injured clients. For more information regarding our firm and your rights following a railroad accident, contact our firm.
