What Are the Common Causes of Train Accidents?

Due to their massive size and weight, trains must be handled with absolute caution and care, or potentially devastating accidents can result, such as:

  • Derailment
  • Toxic spill
  • Train-train collision
  • Train-vehicle collision
  • Train-motorcycle collision
  • Train-pedestrian collision

The potential for damage in these events is enormous, which is why railroad personnel are expected to exercise all reasonable prevention measures for the safety of employees, passengers, and others who may be harmed if an accident occurs.

Unfortunately, oversights are not exceedingly rare in the train industry. Every year, multiple train accident injuries and deaths occur due to negligence on the part of railroad companies and personnel. Common contributing factors include:

  • Violation of safety protocol
  • Conductor fatigue
  • Excessive speeding
  • Inebriated or drugged operation
  • Improper storage of hazardous substances
  • Faulty train tracks or inadequate inspections
  • Improper or inadequate maintenance of crossing signals and guards

If I Am Injured in a Train Accident, Who Can I Make a Claim Against?

You may have a viable claim or claims against a single party or multiple parties, depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident. They can include the:

  • Train company
  • Train operator
  • Light rail transit agencies
  • Local city and state government entities
  • Train manufacturer

Additionally, if you are a railroad employee who has been injured in a train accident you may be able to pursue damages from your employer.

To learn more about your specific case and whether you have a viable claim, consult with an attorney as soon as possible.
