My railroad injury lawyer colleague Rick Shapiro wrote a short article titled: “Why Waiting Too Long To Hire A Railroad Injury Attorney Can Kill Your Case: The Top Five Reasons” which answers many of the questions we receive from North Carolina (NC) (and other) railroad worker conductors, engineers or track maintenance workers about what can happen if they don’t hire their own lawyer in a railroad injury case. While a short delay may not make a difference, more times than not it will make a big difference and sometimes the delay can kill your railroad injury case. Rick gives the top five reasons in the full article, which discusses missing/destroyed evidence, how the railroad talks to your doctors and nurses without your knowledge and other important things to know.
