HOW MUCH IS MY BALTIMORE PERSONAL INJURY CASE WORTH? What about railways and railway crossings?
Of course everyone has the obligation to look and listed for a train before crossing a track. Experienced Baltimore personal injury lawyers know that both the operator of the train, and anyone crossing the rails, have the duty to us reasonable care to avoid an accident. But what about an injury that occurs on the railroad's property, or on their right-of-way, but does not involve a train. Unless the individual has permission to be on the property, they are considered trespassers, or what knowledgeable Baltimore personal injury lawyers know are called "bare licensees". The railroad owes no duty of reasonable care to these individuals. The railroad would only be liable for injuries that it, or it's employees intentionally or wantonly caused.
