Railroad (Car – Train) Accidents
Railroad collisions between trains and cars at a crossing often involve complex investigation of technical and engineering issues such as speed, crossing protection, and sight distance. Railroad accidents often involve serious injuries including paralysis, amputation, brain injury, spinal cord injury, and death. Victims of train collisions may recover for pain and suffering, medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and loss of earning capacity. Many fact situations are covered by the law applicable to railroad related collisions, including:
- Train/car collisions
- People and bikes hit by trains
- Safety gate failures
- Warning light failures
- Errors caused by fatigue, alcohol or drugs
- Poor training and maintenance
