Train Accident Lawsuits


Car-train accidents and pedestrian-train accidents occur about once every 100 minutes in the United States.  According to the National Safety Council, each year an estimated 4,000 train-vehicle collisions take place at railroad crossings leading to over 400 fatalities and more than 1,100 injuries.  If an injury or death occurred because the railroad company failed to provide adequate safety conditions, the company may be held liable for failure to keep its employees or the public safe from injury.
