Help For Families Impacted By Train Accidents
Some of the most dangerous injury-causing accidents are those involving trains and railroad crossings. Due to the sheer size and speed at which trains can travel, catastrophic injuries and death are all too common in railroad accidents.
According to the Federal Railroad Administration’s Office of Safety Analysis, there are several surprising statistics from 2016:
- Total number of train, highway-rail and other railroad-related accidents: 11,170
- Total number of fatal accidents: 747
- Total number of fatalities: 791
- Primary cause of train accidents: human factors, 38.72 percent; track defects, 29.09 percent; equipment defects, 14.88 percent; signal defects, 2.5 percent; miscellaneous causes, 14.82 percent
As one can see, railroad safety is extremely important, as many injuries, deaths and accidents occur each year. Many of these could have been prevented if not for negligent railroad workers, failure to adhere to safety standards or mechanical defects due to product liability.
