Types of Train Accidents that Causes Injuries

Train accidents happen in mainly two forms:

  1. Accidents between trains
  2. Collisions between trains and vehicles on the road

Accidents between trains typically receive a lot of publicity. This is because there is always the risk of a large number of injuries or fatalities. Passenger trains in California routinely transport hundreds of passengers at a time. Therefore, a collision between two of these trains can put many people at risk, not to mention those that are not on the train but in the vicinity of a collision.

In crashes between trains, it can be hard to identify who is at fault or whether several mistakes led to the accident. For instance:

  • A conductor not stopping at a signal.
  • A controller directing two trains on the same tracks at the same time.
  • Switching problems that make it impossible for trains to take separate tracks, leading to two trains sharing a track at the same time.
  • Singular train accidents, sometimes due to a defect in the train line itself. For example, using low quality materials during construction, like substandard steel. When poor products are used, a train is at a greater risk for derailment, which places every passenger in harm's way.

California Train Accidents Involving Vehicles

Trains in California can be involved in collisions with automobiles as well.

These usually take place at crossings where trains and cars both use the same part of a road. These crossings are regulated by signals and many have gates that lower to stop vehicles from inadvertently driving into the path of a train. But not all of the crossings are well controlled, and those that are sometimes have malfunctions.

When this happens, it is possible for a vehicle to cross railroad tracks at the same time an approaching train will use the tracks, causing a crash between the train and vehicle. These collisions are very serious and generally lead to injuries or fatality to the passengers of the vehicle. The passengers on a train can be hurt as well, particularly if the train brakes hard to avoid the collision or derails after impact.

With dozens of players involved and hundreds of ways a train accident can occur, it is not unusual that these cases can be difficult.

In addition, train employees have unique protections under the law. The Federal Employees Liability Act, commonly known as FELA, can provide an avenue for an injured worker to recover for any kind of railway-related damages. These employees might have a claim under the law as well as a claim against an at-fault individual so that multiple claims might actually exist.
