Railroad operators are responsible for preserving the safety of their passengers, employees and others who may come into contact with their trains or other property. State and federal laws exist to ensure a measure of safety to the public, but accidents nonetheless occur.
At Willis Law, we represent people who have been injured, or whose loved ones have been killed due to the negligence of railroad operators. We help clients seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, ongoing rehabilitation, loss of future income and other damages associated with their injuries.
Although our practice is centered in West Michigan, we employ attorneys who are licensed in Illinois and in Florida. We work with both Michigan and out-of-state attorneys on referral, and always work to achieve the best compensation for our clients.

Recovering the True Costs of Your Injuries | Kalamazoo Train Accident Attorneys
At Willis Law, our attorneys diligently investigate clients' train accident injuries, and employ accident reconstructionists, medical experts and vocational counselors who can testify on our clients' behalf in court.
Through strong evidence gathering, and a thorough understanding of state and federal railroad laws, we can prove not only how an accident occurred, but the true costs of any damages to a client, now and over a lifetime.
Further, if your spouse, child or close family member died as a result of injuries he or she suffered in a railroad negligence accident, we can help you pursue wrongful death compensation for lost companionship, income and burial expenses. We also assist clients who suffered catastrophic injuries and burn injuries.
The Importance of Full Compensation | Don't Sell Yourself Short
Although financial compensation is a poor substitute for a lost limb or lost loved one, it can ease your financial burdens and provide you with some measure of satisfaction following a terrible event.
Train accident cases can be complex and time-sensitive, so it is best to call our competent railroad injury lawyers before signing any settlements. The amounts railroad companies offer are often far less than the true costs of a railroad injury. Once you sign a settlement, it is often impossible to pursue further payments later.
