Fox II News recently reported on Wisconsin’s National Railway Museum hosting a Rail Safety Week event, as proclaimed by Governor Scott Walker. Law enforcement authorities were on hand to make safety presentations and educate the public on the potential dangers of railways. During 2015, two people were killed and another 12 people were injured at railroad crossings in the state of Wisconsin. Another three people sustained injuries and eight people were killed after trespassing on railroad tracks. Law enforcement characterized all of these injuries and deaths as wholly preventable. With 4,500 railroad crossings throughout the state of Wisconsin, there is ample reason to educate individuals on the perils of these railroads.
A national organization whose goal is to reduce or eliminate railroad crossing accidents, Operation Lifesaver, made a stop at the state-sponsored event. The group hopes to raise awareness about railroad crossing dangers and teach individuals to avoid trespassing on railroad tracks. In many cases, individuals may not even realize that they are trespassing when accidents on railroads occur. For instance, the group reminded local photographers and high schoolers to avoid using railroad tracks for senior photos. The group reports that a person or a vehicle is hit by a train about every three hours in the United States, facts which form the basis of its “See Tracks? Think Train” campaign.
Some of the safety tips offered by Operation Lifesaver include the following:

We live in Friendship, Wisconsin, and Boller & Vaughan came to our doorstep to discuss our mother’s wrongful death claim on a Saturday morning. Not only were we pleased with the large recovery, we were so thankful to have lawyers who were willing to explain to us every twist and turn along the way. It is great to know there is a law firm that will fight for the rights of elderly people all over Wisconsin.
Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan were incredible in working on my case and my daughter’s case. I was out of work and in the hospital with a new baby. Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan protected our rights and it was a pleasure to work with them. I hope never to be in another motor vehicle accident, however, if I am and I am injured, I will contact Boller & Vaughan immediately.
I was referred to Michelle through a friend. I have never had a better experience. It took a little over a year to get my settlement but the staff there stayed in constant contact and kept me in the loop. Oh, and Michelle actually got me MORE money than we discussed. I will refer anyone to this firm. Words cannot do justice the thanks that I have for Michelle and her staff (Mary especially) thank you guys so much!
After my husband died as a result of a motor vehicle accident, Boller & Vaughan spent countless hours talking with me, meeting with me in person, and making sure that I was okay. The drunk driver who hit us did not have any insurance, and we had to make a claim through our own insurance. Boller & Vaughan was fantastic at explaining the law to me and the handling of our claims.
After my son was injured in a daycare setting, Ms. Vaughan took the time to thoroughly investigate our case and my son’s injuries. Michele was approachable and had answers to our questions. Talking with her helped to relieve many of our anxieties.
