Train Accidents

Holding Liable Train Operators Responsible After Accidents

Accident victims have very little protection when they are traveling by train since there are no safety devices, such as seat belts, to prevent them from being thrown from their seat and, potentially, out of the train car altogether. Passengers who suffer injuries are often hospitalized and treated for serious injuries, including head trauma, back injuries and broken bones.

Common causes for train accidents include:

  • Failed train signals
  • Derailings
  • The missing of vital signals in the train’s path
  • Mechanical Issues
  • Collisions with other trains
  • Operator under the influence (drinking/drugs)
  • Operator distracted as a result of cellphone use

Freight and passenger train companies have a responsibility to ensure that their operators are well-trained and know the signals they must be aware of on the rails.
