Phoenix Lack of Safety Gates Attorney

Collisions between trains and other vehicles are far more common that many people realize; in 2007, trains were involved in over 13,000 traffic accidents. One device meant to reduce the rate of these accidents is the railroad safety gate, also known as a crossing guard. These gates are placed at the intersections between train tracks and roads, especially in high-traffic areas. When a train is coming, they are supposed to lower a gate or “arm” across the road to stop approaching cars.

Unfortunately, these devices do not always work correctly, and the results can be disastrous. If you have been hurt by such a malfunction, or a lack of any safety gates at a certain location, Phoenix lack of safety gates attorneys Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C. are ready to represent you. Call us at 800-723-1676.
