catastrophic injuries can result due to all types of negligent actions. In 2015, one of the

than 200 others after derailing.

Causes of Railroad, Train & Other Commuter Wrecks
As it can be with many accident cases, a single cause is not always the
culprit in a serious train or commuter wreck.
Many times, there are a number of contributing factors, including the following:
- Negligence by the conductor, including texting, sleeping or other distractive behavior
- Improper training or supervision of railway and other workers
- Improper or lack of maintenance of tracks and railways
defective equipment and train parts
- Faulty or defective signage, warning lights and other warning signals
These are just some of the many reasons that can lead to a serious commuter
crash. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate each case to make sure all
potentially negligent parties in a
train accident are held liable for their actions—from individual employees of a
railway company to the company itself and other businesses that maintain
the railway. Whether you were injured in a railway collision or derailment
as a passenger or you are a railroad worker who was injured on the job,
we are here to seek full and fair compensation on your behalf.
