Indianapolis Mechanical Defect / Malfunction Lawyers
Trains are complex vehicles that require the correct functioning of many component parts in order for them to operate properly. They operate at fast speeds and travel long distances every day. If one part of a train malfunctions, it seriously jeopardizes the safety of everyone on and near the train.
Unfortunately, the individuals responsible for building and repairing trains and their component parts fail to properly do their jobs in many cases, and their negligent actions can result in injury to and the death of large numbers of individuals.
The mechanical defect / malfunction attorneys of Hankey Marks & Crider are here to represent you if you have been in a train accident due to a mechanical defect or malfunction.
Who is Responsible?
A train’s conductor is responsible for the safe operation of the train, but only to the extent that he or she is in control of the situation. While a conductor is responsible for paying attention to the situations at hand and operating according to prescribed safety protocols, he or she cannot be held responsible for accidents that are caused by improper train design, construction, or repairs.
The individuals responsible for designing and manufacturing trains must be held to the highest standard of accountability for their work. When negligent individuals fail to give the attention needed to the building or repair of any vehicle, they must be punished for their errors and oversights.
The mechanical defect lawyers of Hankey Marks & Crider will fight against the individuals and companies responsible for producing dangerous and inferior products.
Proving guilt for train defects / malfunction can be an extremely long and complicated process, and so it is important that a legal professional work through the process with you to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
