Victims of railroad accidents usually suffer similar injuries to those sustained in other motor vehicle accidents including head and brain injuries, back and spine injuries, sprains, fractures, abrasions, and burns. This dangerous field of work has many accident risk factors including lifting heavy cargo, frequently using heavy machinery and the inability to stop a train quickly. These factors can lead to collisions, highway-rail and trespassing incidents, and derailments. We have worked with victims of many railroad cases that were injured from the following reasons:
- substance abuse
- conductor or crew member negligence
- failure to follow legally mandated safety regulations
- failure to sound the horn or be properly lit when approaching train crossings
- inadequate braking
- improper loading of cargo
