What Causes Train Accidents?

As our train injury attorneys fully know, there are a lot of variables that could potentially lead to an injury with any means of transportation. Trains are a little bit unique because of the design of the railroads and the size of the vehicles. Here are some reasons train injurys occur:

  • Trains getting derailed
  • Trains going too fast
  • A lack of maintenance on the train making it unsafe
  • An operator making an error or trying to operate the train while exhausted
  • An issue with the signaling on the train for the crossing
  • A mechanical issue
  • The train not being able to brake
  • The tracks being obstructed by debris

There are some instances of a train injury being caused by the manufacturer failing to put together a safe train or railroad. In a case like that, the negligence would fall on the manufacturer rather than the operator of the train.

Establishing Liability

Prior incidents at the site of a collision can increase the liability of the rail company or municipality. Establishing railroad liability in a train injury litigation case requires the use of many experts as well as a re-creation of the actual collision. Issues such as visibility, speed, prior injurys, crossing maintenance, and safety record of the train personnel are all important issues in the prosecution of train injurys and railroad crossing cases.

The Keenan Law Firm is skilled at litigating many types of railroad injury and wrongful death cases.
