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
- 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.
