Have you been inured in a railway accident?

Train, subway, and railway accidents occur under a number of conditions and often involve motor vehicles.

People are extremely vulnerable in the event of a derailing or un-secured cargo and there have been many occurrences of malfunctioning signal equipment at intersections. There are hundreds of thousands of miles of track traversing this country. Many of these rails are used for freight transportation, including cargo, merchandise and chemicals.Trains carrying toxic chemicals are particularly threatening if involved in an accident. Passenger trains use only a fraction of the railroads in the nation, but are still involved in collisions and derailments each year.

Collisions and derailments may occur for a number of reasons. Engineer negligence, inadequate rail maintenance and unsafe operators have all been blamed for train wrecks. There have been an increasing number of train collisions involving motor vehicles. Many rail companies rely on technology that is outdated by today’s standards. Also, increases in automobile traffic have compromised the safety of railways at street crossings. Local jurisdictions often have no control over the train travel in their area resulting in delays for local emergency response to catastrophic situations in the community. There are many factors that lead to a railroad accident, and if you or a loved on has been hurt on a train or subway, your best course of action is to consult with a lawyer with expertise in train wrecks and the accompanying issues. Please call Burnett & Williams at 703-777-1650.
