Train Accidents

Did You Suffer A Serious Injury?

Thousands of train accidents occur every year, injuring hundreds of people and killing dozens more. Even relatively minor train crashes can cause serious injuries due to the sheer number of passengers. However, passengers aren’t the only people at risk. Victims in train crashes are sometimes people who fell onto the tracks or were crossing the tracks at the wrong time because of a defective signal or gate. No matter the cause, anyone seriously injured in a train accident deserves the chance to seek legal recourse.

Causes Of Train Accidents

Some of the most common causes of these types of crashes include:

  • Derailments
  • Train / train collisions
  • Car / train collisions
  • Railroad crossing accidents

Derailments often lead to the greatest number of injured passengers, and are most often the result of ignored safety standards, but can also be caused by:

  • Speeding
  • Broken or faulty tracks
  • Obstacles or obstructions on the train tracks
  • Faulty or malfunctioning equipment
  • Excessive cargo weight
