Whether trains collide with vehicles or pedestrians, any accident that occurs at railroad crossings can be devastatingly severe or fatal.

Auto Drivers Negligence

Fault and liability of these accidents can come from careless drivers or from train operators and railroad companies. When drivers fail to yield at railway crossings, their negligence cannot only cause themselves serious injury, but it can also cause extensive damages to other vehicles as well as to the train and railroad company.

Operator Negligence And On-The-Job Injuries

Concomitantly, railroad companies are held to high liability standards. When train companies are found negligent in personal injury cases, there could be a number of different causalities involved. Train operator and railroad company negligence in these cases could include:

  • Operating under fatigue
  • Operating under the influence of alcohol
  • Operating at excessive speeds
  • Lack of hazard signals at crossings (signs, lights)
  • Safety equipment failure (gates didn’t close)
  • Absence of safety equipment (unprotected crossing)
  • Hazardous cargo spills
  • Engineer Negligence
  • Conductors Negligence
  • Grade Crossing Accidents
  • Collision With Bus
  • Wrongful Death
  • Insufficient On-the-job Training
  • Derailment due to poor track maintenance
  • Derailment due to mechanical failure

Railroad and train conductors, engineers, and crew that are injured on the job could be entitled to compensation Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA). Train accidents occur some 4000 times each year, causing as many as 1100 injuries to employees, passengers, automobile drivers, and pedestrians at crossings. In addition, around four hundred fatalities occur as a result of these accidents.

The Federal Railroad Administration claims an initiative to improve safety for employees, train equipment, and railroad crossings for the sake of those potentially in the path of these dangerous, heavy, and high-speed machines. These initiatives include addressing employee fatigue, improving general safety standards, increasing research for the benefit of trains handling of HAZMAT cargo.
