Train Accident Injuries
Each year, thousands of people are injured in railroad accidents and train derailments. According to the US Government, a person is hit by a train every two hours. The injuries sustained are generally massive in number and catastrophic in severity, making these types of cases extremely complex.
What You Need to Know
Railroad companies have a duty to follow appropriate routes, require/enforce certain levels of training certifications for employees, ensure safe usage of equipment, and much more. If a railroad company or a liable third party is deemed to have breached any of these duties, the injured person(s) has a cause for legal action.
