Railroad Accidents

Especially in populated areas, rail lines frequently cross major roads and continue to pose a threat to other vehicular traffic and pedestrians. Each year there are approximately 3,000 train accidents in the U.S. and about 1,000 people lose their lives.

As commuter areas expand and train speeds increase there is a greater danger of railroad accidents. Railroad accidents generally include collisions with motor vehicles and other trains, derailments, accidents due to mechanical failure and human error.

Defective railroad tracks, excessive cargo loads, poor maintenance, increased train traffic and defective tracks can all be causes of these types of accidents. Railroad crossing accidents can be extremely dangerous and expose train operators, passengers, pedestrians and automobile drivers and passengers to significant risks to life and serious personal injury.
