Commuter Train Injury Lawyers
in Northern California

Though commuter trains have brought significant convenience to residents of the Bay Area, they also pose significant risk of personal injury. In 2009, California had nearly twice as many pedestrian fatalities in commuter train accidents as any other state. In many instances, the cause is human error—a conductor, engineer or train operator simply fails to pay proper attention or follow proper procedures. Unfortunately, when you are involved in a commuter train accident, the consequences can be serious, or even deadly. The attorneys at Weber & Nierenberg can help.
