According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately one in every nine highway deaths involves a large truck. Neck and back, quadriplegia, paraplegia, loss of limb, and brain injuries are only some of the serious injuries commonly associated with semi-truck and passenger vehicle accidents. Rick Woods employs an aggressive and proven method in order to get you the settlement or verdict you deserve.


In addition to the potential operational negligence of the train crew, the safety aspects of the railroad highway crossing must be analyzed. Engineering and human factors must be utilized in this safety analysis. Familiarity with technical data published by the Federal Highway Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation, American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, and other state and local sources is an absolute must in determining whether a given railroad grade crossing is reasonably safe or an ultra hazardous crossing. Expert witnesses are indispensable in prosecuting these cases.
