Trains are used every day to transport people, cargo, and in some cases hazardous materials across the state and country, in part because trains are a cost-effective mode of transportation. Although trains have greatly improved since the first train was invented in the early 1800’s, there are still train-related accidents and deaths occurring in the United States every year. In fact, there are about 3,000 train accidents each year in the United States, resulting in approximately 1,000 deaths and countless serious injuries.
Train accidents may be caused by any number of factors, such as inadequate security on the train, operator/driver negligence, poorly maintained train parts, broken or damaged tracks, or mechanical failure.
There are many serious physical injuries which may result from a train accident and these injuries may have long-term negative effects on your life. Depending upon the type and severity of your injuries you may be unable to work, properly care for yourself or your family, or participate in the activities that you enjoy. With the representation of aggressive legal representation, you may be able to hold the negligent party responsible for the injuries that their negligence or inaction caused, as well as recover monetary compensation for your injuries and other train accident-related costs.
