Trains are a common mode of transportation for people commuting to and from work as well as people taking trips for vacation and/or to visit family and friends. But the last thing you expect when heading to store is that you will be involved in a train accident. Unfortunately, as with any other mode of transportation, train accidents do occur and can be especially devastating.
Collisions with other trains or objects, obstructions, derailments, and other types of train accidents can occur in rail yards, on the main track and/or at railroad crossings. These accidents may involve passenger trains or freight trains and may be caused by a number of different factors. In the event of a crash, however, occupants of the train and/or those in proximity to the train can suffer serious injury or even death.
While there are many factors that can contribute to a train crash, they are often caused by human error or even defective machinery. If you or a loved one has been injured in a train accident caused by negligence, the experienced train accident attorneys at McCorquodale Law Firm, can help you decide on the best course of action.
