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
- Faulty or 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.
