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
