Types of Train Accidents That Causes Injuries

Train accidents happen in mainly two forms:

Accidents between trains often get a lot of publicity. This is because there is always the risk of a large number of injuries or fatalities. Passenger trains in California regularly transport hundreds of passengers at a time. As a result, a crash between two of these trains can put many people in danger, as well as those that are not on the train but in the vicinity of a collision.

In collisions between trains, it can be difficult to determine who is at fault or whether multiple mistakes caused the accident. For example:

California Train Accidents Involving Cars

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

These typically take place at crossings where trains and automobiles both use the same part of a roadway. These crossings are regulated by signals and many have gates that lower to stop cars from inadvertently driving into the path of a train. But not all of the crossings are well regulated, and those that are sometimes have malfunctions.

When this occurs, it is possible for a car to cross railroad tracks at the same time an oncoming train will use the tracks, resulting in a crash between the train and car. These collisions are very serious and generally result in injuries or death to the occupants of the vehicle. The passengers on a train can be hurt as well, especially if the train brakes hard to avoid the crash or derails after impact.

With dozens of players involved and hundreds of ways a train accident can happen, it is not surprising that these cases can be challenging.

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