Air, train, car and mass transit accidents can be a devastating situation causing great physical and emotional pain for victims and their families.
As often seen with automobile accidents, very serious injuries and even death may occur as a result of faulty equipment or the negligence of a pilot, conductor, or controller. Complex issues, such as determining fault and insurance coverage, frequently arise in these cases.
Although plane accidents are less common than car accidents, they do occur from time to time. And when they do, they often result in serious injury or death for the victims.
After personal injury or the loss of a loved one due to a plane crash, most people don’t know how to respond right away. You may not know where to turn for legal guidance, and you may feel intimidated by the prospect of taking on a large airline corporation. However, it’s important to seek sound advice and know your rights, as doing so can ensure you receive fair and just compensation for your physical and emotional injuries.
At Meyers, Flowers, Bruno & Herrmann, we represent clients in Peru and throughout the state of Illinois who have suffered physical and emotional injuries, or lost loved ones, in a private or commercial plane accident. We have long-standing relationships with leading aviation experts and industry personnel, and will perform extensive investigative work on your behalf to find out exactly what caused the crash – whether it was faulty equipment, FAA regulation violations, pilot error, design flaws and structural problems of the aircraft or employee negligence. Depending on these findings, we will then do everything within our power to ensure you receive the rightful damages you deserve.
Train accidents and derailments occur for a variety of reasons, including negligence by the train manufacturer, operator and workers, or by the company that owns the train. Whether the train collides with another train, a pedestrian or an automobile, the consequences of these accidents tend to be devastating, often resulting in serious and life-threatening injuries for those involved.
For example, victims of a train accident may suffer injuries so severe that they lose the ability to work and earn an income. If a family member was killed in a train accident, the survivors must cope not only with the sudden loss of their loved one, but also with the loss of their financial support. In these cases and many more, victims of train accidents due to negligence may be entitled to compensation. Our attorneys at Meyers, Flowers, Bruno & Herrmann have the experience and resources necessary to take on the large corporations that own and operate freight and passenger trains, to ensure your rights are protected.
When passengers board a public bus, shuttle bus, school bus or charter bus, they trust that they are in safe and capable hands. However, accidents on these types of vehicles do occur, often with serious injuries that require hospitalization and ongoing medical care. In addition, the victims’ injuries may be so extensive that they lose their ability to earn an income, placing a severe financial strain on their lives moving forward.
When this happens, our train accident lawyers are here to help. We will perform extensive investigative work on your behalf to determine the cause of the crash – whether it was a mechanical issue, driver error, dangerous weather conditions or something else. We will then use those findings to guide your case, ensuring you receive the fair and just compensation you’re entitled to.
