Most people injured aboard trains are railroad workers involved in a workplace accident. However, passengers sometimes sustain injuries. It's important to know that railroad companies must follow safety regulations to ensure the wellbeing of passengers.
How railroad accidents happen
Railroad accidents may occur for any number of reasons, including:
- Train derailment
- Collision with a car, truck or bus
Additionally, railroad accidents may be caused by any number of factors. Common causes include:
- Track defects or structural defects
- Electrical or mechanical malfunction
- Human error, which may include driver fatigue or communication problems among crew members
Injuries to passengers and railroad workers may range from minor to severe. Some common injuries from railroad accidents include:
- Head, neck or back injuries
- Broken bones
- Serious cuts or lacerations
Railroad carriers are also bound to adhere to regulations regarding railroad crossing safety. These measures extend to the train's crew members who have obligations they must meet in order to avoid professional negligence such as sounding the horn when approaching certain crossings in high-population areas.
