Types of Train Accidents that Causes Injuries

Train accidents occur 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 deaths. Passenger trains in California regularly transport hundreds of passengers at a time. Therefore, 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 crash.

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

California Train Accidents Involving Vehicles

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

These generally happen 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 prevent 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 approaching train will use the tracks, causing a crash between the train and automobile. These crashes are very serious and usually result in injuries or death to the passengers of the vehicle. The passengers on a train can be hurt too, especially 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 happen, it is not surprising that these cases can be challenging.

In addition, train workers have unique protections under the law. The Federal Employees Liability Act, commonly known as FELA, can provide an avenue for an injured employee to recover for any railway-related damages. These workers may have a claim under the law in addition to a claim against an at-fault party so that multiple claims may actually exist.

Consult and Experienced Pasadena Train Crash Attorney

Train accidents typically are serious and cause serious injury or death to dozens or even hundreds of passengers at a time. Also, those in vehicles that are struck by trains are at a high risk for physical injuries and damage after an impact. Regardless of whether you were a traveler in a train or in a vehicle, if you have been involved in an accident with a train, you might be entitled to a monetary recovery for your damages.

A personal injury lawyer can help you understand whether you have a claim and what damages you might be able to recuperate, including payment for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, as well as any other expenses you were forced to incur. With the facts of each accident and each injury differing from one another, it is a good idea to consult with a lawyer to get advice specific to your situation.
