Common Train Accident Causes
Railroads are less frequently traveled today relative to their use the
course of their short history, but trains are still a regular facet of
life for many. Plenty of people still use trains to get from place to
place in lieu of a car; others drive but must pass over railroad tracks
on a regular basis. The railroad industry also remains a major method
of transporting goods across large distances, and those who load, maintain,
and operate trains interact with these massive vehicles every day.
The main types of train accidents include derailments, collisions with
motor vehicles or other trains, and pedestrian injuries at railroad crossings.
Train accidents are often caused by:
- Excessive speed
- Poor track maintenance
- Inspection violations
- Conductor error
- Obstructions or pedestrians on tracks
- Driver fatigue or intoxication
- Non-functioning warning signals
Effects of Train Accidents
The effects of train accidents can be catastrophic. An impact between a
train and a vehicle is often deadly because of the train’s enormous
mass. Train derailments can cause a great deal of widespread property
damage and injury including death.
Because of this, train accident victims often suffer significant and potentially
catastrophic injuries. Such injuries can be very costly to recover from,
as patients may require extensive hospitalization, surgeries, medication,
live-in care, and other treatments and quality of life changes. Victims
may have to take time off work to recover, losing wages, or even have
to quit their jobs altogether.
Fortunately, a successful train accident claim should allow you to recover
damages for the following:
- All past and future medical care
- Lost earnings from missed work
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Other costs associated with your accident
