Railroad & Aviation Accident Attorneys in Wyoming

Both railroad and aviation accidents typically have devastating consequences. These types of accidents are often caused by human error or defective products and can result in serious bodily injury and death.

If you were harmed in a recent railroad or aviation accident, or had a family member or loved one die in such an incident, the Wyoming railroad and aviation accident attorneys at The Spence Law Firm can help. We have years of experience handling complex railroad and aviation accident claims and we do everything in our power to ensure that you obtain the best outcome possible for your situation.

Railroad Cases
We Have Handled

At The Spence Law Firm, we have been litigating railroad accident cases across the country for decades. These types of cases are often very complicated, requiring an in-depth knowledge of various federal and state railroad laws. Often, multiple parties are liable for the accident, including commercial railroad companies, and a number of different factors must be examined when determining who is at fault.

The Spence Law Firm has taken on major railroads – including Union Pacific Railroad UPRR, Burlington Northern BNSF, and others – when their negligence results in injury or death.

We have obtained substantial verdicts and settlements in the following railroad cases:

  • A substantial confidential settlement for the family of a man who was killed in a dark and dangerous rail switching yard on the tracks at a Wyoming trona mine during rail switching operations
  • A $2 million verdict for the family of a man who was killed in a train-truck collision at a dangerous unguarded crossing in Wyoming
  • A substantial wrongful death settlement for the family of a young New Mexico college student who was struck by a train when her car became stuck on the tracks at a dangerous grade crossing in New Mexico
  • Multiple confidential settlements in excess of $10 million for the families of people who were killed in one of the deadliest railroad accidents in New Mexico history. The victims were killed in a multi-car and tractor-trailer pile up caused by a wildfire that started after a Union Pacific railroad gang laying railroad track near I-40 started a fire.

Additionally, we have pushed the envelope in FELA (Federal Employers Liability Act) and Wyoming Railroad Act cases to recover for railroad employees who never believed they could overcome the workers' compensation schemes or the powerful railroad companies. We make it our mission to defend ordinary people against large corporations and will work tirelessly to fight for the compensation you deserve.

Aviation Accident Cases We Handle

When you fly, you depend upon the pilot and the aircraft to safely carry you to your destination. When pilots are not properly trained or are overworked, or when an aircraft does not receive adequate maintenance or mechanical attention, accidents can occur. Such negligence can lead to serious injuries and very often death. Aviation accidents are incredibly complex, often with multiple liable parties. For this reason, it's important to seek a firm with experience in this area in order to better your chances of receiving the fair compensation you are owed after an accident.

At The Spence Law Firm, we have obtained substantial verdicts and settlements for clients involved in:

  •  Major commercial airline crashes involving hundreds of victims
  •  Private and charter plane crashes
  •  Helicopter crashes due to pilot error

Whether an accident was caused by human error or a defective or malfunctioning part, surviving victims and victims' family members deserve justice. At The Spence Law Firm, we aim to help you recover the compensation you are owed and work to ensure that similar accidents don't occur again in the future.
