The Valley Metro light rail just recently arrived in Phoenix and already there have been a number of collisions. Some of these collisions may be the fault of the light-rail operators, while other collisions may be the fault of motorists whose vehicles hit the trains. Whoever is at fault, one thing is certain, their negligence can be the cause of serious personal injuries and damages.

Contact us for representation in a light rail accident case. With more than 35 years of experience on our side, we know how to quickly and effectively address new issues that arise with these unique cases.

We are prepared to handle light-rail accidents involving trains colliding with vehicles due to operator negligence or inattentiveness. We are also prepared to represent light-rail passengers who are injured due to the negligence of the train operator or the negligent motorist. We will thoroughly investigate and determine who is responsible for the accident, and we will hold them fully accountable for all of your injuries and related losses and damages.

Light-rail accident cases require immediate action. The deadlines for action in these cases, because they involve a government entity, are much shorter than in other personal injury cases. In fact, the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit is half of what it would be for other personal injury claims. Equally important is the fact that a formal notice of claim must be provided to any governmental agency against whom a negligence claim is being made, and the claim must be made quickly, as required by Arizona statute, and as a prerequisite to filing a lawsuit. If the statute is not strictly complied with, the claim can be lost. As a result, it is imperative that an experienced and competent attorney be promptly retained to protect your legal right to bring a claim.

At our law firm, we will not hesitate to take action against a government entity if that entity has caused harm. As a governmental entity or agency, they are just as responsible as an individual or business for the harm they cause due to their negligence.
