At DiTrapano Barrett DiPiero McGinley & Simmons, PLLC, our lawyers have the investigative resources needed to expose negligence and OSHA violations on the part of railroad employers. Our personal injury attorneys interview eyewitnesses, managers, and the foreman in charge when accidents occur in the yard or office.
