Criaco & Associates is a certified personal injury trial specialist under standards established by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Our long experience with the investigation and proof of factually complex claims against major corporations and multiple defendants can help you collect the compensation you and your family will need in many common railroad injury situations.

  1. Motor vehicle accidents at railroad grade crossings
  2. Passenger or employee injuries suffered on board a train involved in a collision or derailment.
  3. Accidents resulting from failure to maintain signals, barriers, or signs along the railroad’s right of way.
  4. Damages caused by chemical spills, toxic releases, or negligent storage and transport of hazardous freight.
  5. Accidents at railroad stations or freight yards
Railroads have been tough personal injury litigation opponents for as long as Americans have traveled or shipped goods by rail. Our AV-rated* trial lawyers are never intimidated or outgunned in litigation against a rail company; in fact, our willingness and ability to invest in the factual development and presentation of your claim for damages represents a powerful equalizer in any lawsuit against a railroad. Because we advance all the expenses necessary for investigation and expert analysis of the liability and damages issues in your case, our clients need never fear pressure toward a hasty and inadequate settlement.

If you have been involved in a train accident at a grade crossing, or if you have had the misfortune of being evacuated from your home as a result of a chemical spill or toxic release from a railroad car, contact the Houston personal injury lawyers at Criaco & Associates for a free consultation about your claims.
