Common Causes Of Accidents Involving Trains
Railroad companies must follow strict safety standards. When companies fail to meet these standards, people lose their lives. We will review your train accident case and determine whether mistakes were made, such as:
- Improper mechanical maintenance: Train brakes or other parts may not be properly maintained. Mechanical failures may prevent trains from stopping in time, resulting in a catastrophic crash.
- Defective crossing guards: Crossing guards are meant to warn drivers of oncoming trains. If they fail to operate correctly, drivers may unknowingly find themselves in the path of an approaching train.
- Overloaded cargo: The maximum weight trains can carry is strictly regulated. If cargo loads are too heavy, the train may tip, causing severe injuries or deaths.
