Committed New York Railroad Accident Attorney Pursues Justice for Victims

Rhinebeck law firm helps when you are injured due to rail carrier negligence

A railroad accident can permanently change your life. Accidents involving heavy, speeding trains often result in catastrophic loss, including severe injuries or death and environmental damage. Usually, negligence is the cause of these devastating accidents. Law Office of Steven M Melley believes you deserve compensation from the careless person or company who has harmed you or your family in this way.

I am prepared to represent you in claims that include:

  • Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA)
  • Employee rail yard injuries
  • Train collisions with other trains
  • Train crashes with cars, trucks, buses and other motor vehicles
  • Pedestrians hit by trains
  • Derailment
  • Mechanical failure
  • Poorly maintained tracks
  • Malfunctioning or missing railroad crossing signals
  • Conductor negligence
  • Release of hazardous or toxic materials
  • Safety and security breaches

Knowledgeable attorney standing by your side

Railroads and their insurance companies maintain substantial legal teams poised to avoid their responsibility to you in the chaotic aftermath of a train accident. I match their calculated efforts with unshakable determination to win rightful compensation for you. I compete with these industry interests by drawing on my extensive knowledge about federal regulations, transportation requirements, labor law, personal injury, civil litigation and mediation. I am passionate about conducting a thorough investigation into the causes of the railroad accident and the extent of your injuries, and I am bolstered by my team of trauma doctors, chiropractors, forensic engineers, railroad engineers and accident reconstruction analysts who have expert understanding of the railroad industry and train mechanics.
