While trains are among the safest forms of transportation, no method of travel is without its risks. Accidents involving trains can be devastating for those involved, resulting in broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord damage, whiplash, lacerations, and possible death.
Train accidents can take a variety of different forms, including:
- Train-on-train collisions
- Train-on-car collisions
- Railroad crossing accidents
- Railroad accidents
- Slip and falls onto railroad tracks
These types of incidents are oftentimes the result of operator negligence, product and manufacturer liability, or poor maintenance of tracks and train signals. If you have been injured in a train accident, you may be entitled to receive monetary compensation for your injuries.
What Causes Train Accidents?
Train accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. They mostly take place at train crossings when drivers ignore the warnings a train is approaching and try to beat it across the tracks. Most train accidents are caused by:
- Reckless drivers and pedestrians
- Mechanical issues or failure
- Defective train tracks
- Cars stalling on the tracks
