Types of Train Accidents that Causes Injuries

Train accidents happen in primarily two forms:

Accidents between trains typically 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. Therefore, a crash between two of these trains can put many people in danger, not to mention those who are not on the train but in the vicinity of a crash.

In collisions between trains, it can be hard to identify who is at fault or whether multiple errors caused the accident. For instance:

California Train Accidents Involving Cars

Trains in California can be involved in accidents with automobiles as well.

These usually occur at crossings where trains and cars both use the same section of a roadway. These crossings are controlled by signals and many have gates that lower to prevent vehicles from accidentally 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 approaching train will use the tracks, resulting in a collision between the train and automobile. These collisions are very serious and generally lead to injuries or fatality to the passengers of the car. The passengers on a train can be hurt too, especially if the train brakes hard to avoid the collision 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 difficult.

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 worker to recover for any kind of railway-related damages. These employees might have a claim under the law in addition to a claim against an at-fault party so that several claims might actually exist.
