A Foundation Built On Railroad Cases
Nurenberg Paris’ firm history dates back to a period of time when working on the railroad was a dangerous job. Over the years, Marshall Nurenberg and his partners represented many railroad workers after they were injured. We also worked closely with the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen union to help their laborers. At that period of time, injuries in the railroad yard included fractures, crushing injuries, and even death. Through litigation efforts and the work of unions, working on the railroad is now a safer place to work.
Our history with railroad cases more recently includes representing injured passengers and families who lost loved ones in train accidents. Those accidents include collisions between cars and trains, commuter train derailments, or other accidents involving commercial rail lines.

Amtrak 188 Derailment in Philadelphia
On May 12, 2015, an Amtrak commuter train derailed in Northeast Philadelphia shortly before 9:30 p.m. The train was traveling from Washington, D.C., to New York City when it left the track and crashed in an area known as Frankford Junction. Several passengers lost their lives in the accident and hundreds were injured.
According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the train was traveling at a speed over 100 mph at the time of the incident— more than double the recommended safe speed for that area of track. The NTSB is conducting an ongoing investigation into the incident.
At Nurenberg Paris, our hearts go out to the victims and families affected by this terrible tragedy. The families of passengers who lost their lives are in our thoughts, and we wish a full recovery to everyone who was injured.
