Types of Train Accidents that Causes Injuries

Train accidents happen in primarily two forms:

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

Accidents between trains often receive a lot of attention. This is because there is always the risk of a large number of injuries or fatalities. Passenger trains in California routinely transport hundreds of passengers at a time. Therefore, a crash between two of these trains can put many people at risk, 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 instance:

California Train Accidents Involving Cars

Trains in California can be involved in accidents with motor vehicles as well.

These generally occur at crossings where trains and cars both use the same part of a roadway. These crossings are regulated by signals and many 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 occasionally 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 vehicle. These collisions are very serious and usually result in injuries or death to the passengers of the car. The passengers on a train can be hurt too, particularly if the train brakes hard to avoid the collision or derails after impact.

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

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 workers might have a claim under the law as well as a claim against an at-fault party so that several claims may actually exist.
