Types and Causes of Train Accidents

Railroad accidents are frequently caused by improperly maintained tracks, derailment, mechanical failure, or operator inexperience. Driver fatigue can contribute to train accidents as well. Railroad accidents can also lead to hazardous cargo spills, which can injure or kill nearby residents.

Railroad Crossing Accidents

According to the Federal Railroad Administration, more than half of all railroad accidents occur at unprotected crossings. Railroad companies have a legal responsibility to make railroad crossings safe and to provide adequate warning of oncoming trains. Nevertheless, these unprotected railroad crossings pose a major threat, especially in populated areas where railroad lines cross major roads.

Contact a railroad accident lawyer at The Young Firm's New Orleans, Louisiana office if you or a loved one has been seriously injured. If a company fails to prevent a railroad accident, they may be liable for your damages.
