Trains are a common and popular form of commercial and passenger transportation. In the United States, trains log an estimated 1.5 million miles on a daily basis. Unfortunately, trains also account for numerous injuries and deaths each year affecting railroad employees as well as passengers, pedestrians, and drivers. Injured individuals have the legal right to seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit or the Federal Employers Liability Act. Medical bills, extended time off work for recovery and rehabilitation, and the cost of pursuing a legal claim can put an enormous financial strain on the accident victim and their family. High Rise Financial is a pre-settlement funding company that is dedicated to helping accident victims alleviate their financial stress.
Legal Options Following a Train Accident
Railroad employees who are injured on the job are covered under the Federal Employers Liability Act. The law, which was enacted in 1908, allows employees whose injuries are the result of negligence on the part of their employer to sue for damages. Injured individuals who are not railroad employees typically file a personal injury claim against the railroad company and its employees along with the manufacturer of any defective equipment. In order to successfully prove negligence, the injured party should immediately contact an attorney who can go about collecting and preserving all physical evidence and witness testimony related to the accident.

Why Contact High Rise Financial Legal Funding?
High Rise Financial provides financing to plaintiffs in a wide range of railroad-related accidents, including collisions, derailments, and on-the-job injuries. Legal funding is a financial safety net that allows the injured party to pay their monthly bills while they wait for their injury claim to finalize. The cash is not a loan or cash advance. Unlike a traditional loan, there are no monthly payments until the injury case is settled. If the plaintiff does not recover a settlement, they make no payments at all. In other words, funding from High Rise Financial is completely risk-free.
