Trusted, Trial-Tested Representation For Victims Of Rail And Airline Accidents
Atlanta is a major transportation hub. Tens of millions of airline passengers pass through Atlanta each year. And with thousands of miles of railroad track laid across Georgia, Atlanta sees more freight and rail passengers than many other parts of the country.
While the economic benefits of such a bustling system are obvious, there are also serious costs to safety and lives. If you’ve suffered catastrophic injuries or lost someone you love in a commercial or private airplane accident or rail accident, you may find yourself facing powerful and well-funded opponents. You don’t have to take on this challenge alone. Instead, contact me, Attorney Stephen LaBriola. I have more than three decades of experience, and I can help you seek the compensation you need and deserve.
Your Advocate In Plane Crash And Aviation Accident Claims
In terms of crashes, commercial air travel is much safer than most forms of ground transportation. But crashes still do occur – especially in smaller crafts at regional airports. Investigations into these crashes can take months or even years, and victims and their families often feel outmatched by the legal teams representing airlines, aircraft manufacturers and insurers.
I am here to help you even the odds in plane crash litigation. I have considerable experience investigating and litigating claims, and I will fight to ensure that you are seen, heard, and compensated by those responsible for your injuries and losses.
Crashes aren’t the only important metric when it comes to air safety. Each year, an untold number of airline passengers suffer serious injuries related to:
- Accidents that occur during and as a result of turbulence
- Accident on the tarmac while the plane is taxiing, taking off and landing
- Assaults by other passengers due to negligent security on the flight
- Accidents inside and around the airport

I Represent Injured Railroad Workers, Passengers And Other Victims In Rail Accident Litigation
Railroad work has long been one of the most dangerous types of work in the nation. Railroad workers can and do suffer catastrophic and career-ending injuries, some of which result in death. Although Georgia workers’ compensation laws generally prohibit injured workers from suing their employers, railroad employees are not governed by the traditional workers’ compensation system.
Instead, they can seek compensation under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA), which allows them to sue their employers directly. Although rail workers (and the families of deceased workers) must prove that the railroad failed to provide a safe workplace, payouts for successful claims are often significantly higher than they would be under the workers’ compensation system. As an experienced personal injury and wrongful death lawyer, I will work tirelessly to help you prove employer liability and seek maximum compensation on your behalf.
Similarly, if you were injured as a rail passenger or in a collision with a train, I will carefully and thoroughly investigate your case to determine how it happened and who was to blame. I will then help you pursue all available options for compensation.
