Train Accident Injury Claims
San Francisco | San Jose | Oakland | San Rafael CA
With the costs of gasoline at record high prices, and with the stress and anxiety that come with using your own vehicle to commute throughout northern California, many people are turning to commuter trains, such as Caltrain and Metrolink. While these trains are generally safe modes of travel, accidents and injuries are still not uncommon. If you have been injured in a train accident as a result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your rights.
At Weber & Nierenberg, we have focused our practice on personal injury, including train accidents, for over 30 years. We built our practice on a commitment to personal service and attention, working directly with you throughout your case, from your first meeting to the resolution of your claim. Because we are a small law office, with two attorneys and a legal assistant, we have the ability to respond quickly to any developments in your case. Nonetheless, we also have the resources, knowledge base and comprehensive approach you normally expect only from a large law practice.
Our Train Accident Injury Practice
Given the sheer size of a commuter train, the number of passengers traveling by train, and the speeds with which trains travel, the injuries suffered in a train accident can be serious and catastrophic. Our attorneys handle all types of injury claims resulting from train accidents, including brain and spinal cord damage, paralysis, broken bones, and amputation or loss of limb. We also handle wrongful death actions.
We provide aggressive representation to people who been injured in any type of train accident, including:
- Train derailments
- Collisions between two trains
- Collisions between trains and motor vehicles at unmarked railroad crossings
- Injuries caused by train operator negligence, inexperience or fatigue, or from improper or inadequate training
- Trains colliding with motor vehicles or pedestrians
We recognize that the injuries sustained in a train accident can impact every aspect of your life. We will help you seek damages for lost wages or income, for the costs of medical treatment (including physical therapy or rehabilitation), or for physical pain and suffering.

Recent Examples of How We Have Helped Our Personal Injury Clients
We represented the surviving husband and two college-age children of a 50 year-old woman who was crossing the street within a crosswalk, when she was struck and killed by a SamTrans bus. We were able to negotiate the settlement after a year of litigation.
We represented a 29-year-old Muni bus passenger who was lifted from his seat by the bus driver and tossed out the front doors onto the street. The driver claimed that when our client placed his fare in the box, he hit the driver’s hand. Our investigation discovered that the bus driver was a convicted violent felon with a history of allegedly attacking other Muni patrons. Our client suffered a fractured wrist and thumb and significant psychological injury.
