What Are Some Potential Cold Weather Related Railroad Injuries

Q

What are Some Potential Cold Weather Related Railroad Injuries?

A
Our experienced New York and New Jersey FELA attorneys know that railroad work can be extremely dangerous during the winter. We encourage railroad workers to be aware of and to promptly report instances of:
  • Hypothermia: working in excessive cold temperatures can cause your core body temperature to fall and can threaten your life.
  • Injuries Resulting from Derailments or Switch Problems: extreme temperatures may lead to switch problems and train derailments, both of which can cause serious accident injuries.
  • Slip and Falls: ice can quickly form on surfaces causing serious railroad slip and fall accidents.

If you have been hurt in any of these types of railroad accidents, or if you have lost a loved one in any type of cold weather related railroad accident then you may be entitled to damages. Please contact an experienced New Jersey and New York railroad accident lawyer for a free consultation and for more information about your rights and potential recovery.
