Personal Injury Attorney for Railroad & Train Accidents
CLIENTS ARE PRIORITIZED & FOUGHT FOR
Unfortunately, over the last thirty years there have been a few hundred derailments. Train transportation can be some of the most fuel efficient transportation available to us. They have the ability to move thousands of pounds on less fuel then the average automobile would be able to. Train cars can weigh up to approximately 315,000 lbs. That's a lot of weight to get moving and when it is moving in a direction if it takes the unlikely course and derails, disaster can strike.
There were about 827 deaths in 2014 due to train accident's. The deaths were due to a multitude of situations, for example:
- cars stopping in the middle of railroad crossings.
- Increased traffic on outdated infrastructure from increased commerce.
- Lack of proper fencing.
- Lack of proper safety precautions.
Trains made the development of the west coast more efficient and economically feasible. Whether they are carrying cargo from container ships into the interior of the United States or transporting passengers from one destination to another, they are a pivotal part of our commerce.
