Common Causes of Railroad Accidents
More than ninety percent of railroad accidents involve motorists attempting to cross railroad tracks or stopping on railroad tracks despite crossing signals indicating that trains are approaching. However, other types of accidents involving trains are also relatively common, including derailments, collisions of multiple trains with one another, and pedestrian accidents on the rails. Sometimes these types of accidents result from train or signal defects. Because the operator of a railroad is required to maintain trains and equipment properly, many such causes can give rise to successful lawsuits, ensuring that your rights are protected so long as you are working with a knowledgeable attorney who can take full advantage of the complex laws established to protect you in these situations. Another relatively common cause of train accidents is engineer error. If evidence suggests that an issue such as distraction, intoxication or impairment due to drugs or alcohol, or fatigue played a role in your accident, our experienced attorneys may also be able to use facts like these in your favor in building the strongest case possible on your behalf.

In any railroad accident matter, thorough review and investigation of your case are crucial elements of zealously building a strong case on your behalf. Working with an experienced attorney helps to ensure not only that all angles will be reviewed and considered, and all of the facts taken into consideration in order to craft the strongest case possible, but also ensures that all potentially responsible parties will be included in your lawsuit, maximizing the compensation to be awarded for your injuries or losses.
