Types of Train Accidents that Causes Injuries

Train accidents occur in primarily two forms:

  1. Accidents between trains
  2. Collisions between trains and cars on the road

Accidents between trains typically get a lot of attention. This is because there is always the risk of a large number of injuries or deaths. Passenger trains in California routinely transport hundreds of passengers at a time. Therefore, a collision between two of these trains can put many people in danger, not to mention those who are not on the train but in the area of a collision.

In crashes between trains, it can be difficult to determine who is at fault or whether several errors caused the accident. For example:

California Train Accidents involving Cars

Trains in California can be involved in collisions with motor vehicles also.

These normally happen at crossings where trains and cars both use the same section of a road. These crossings are regulated by signals and several have gates that lower to stop vehicles from inadvertently driving into the path of a train. However not all of the crossings are well controlled, and those that are sometimes have malfunctions.

When this happens, it is possible for a car to cross railroad tracks at the same time an oncoming train will use the tracks, causing a crash between the train and vehicle. These crashes are very serious and generally result in injuries or fatality to the passengers of the vehicle. The passengers on a train can be injured too, particularly if the train brakes hard to avoid the crash or derails after impact.

With dozens of players involved and numerous ways a train accident can occur, it is not unusual that these claims can be difficult.

In addition, train workers have special protections under the law. The Federal Employees Liability Act, commonly known as FELA, can provide an avenue for an injured worker to recover for any railway-related damages. These employees may have a claim under the law along with a claim against an at-fault individual so that several claims may actually exist.
