Train Accident Claims
Although travel by train, metro or subway is often affordable and convenient, it may also be dangerous. Train accidents are much less common than
auto accidents, but due to the number of passengers often involved and the extent of damage an accident of this kind may cause, a train accident will typically be much more serious. A passenger involved in a train accident may suffer from
catastrophic injuries or may die.

What causes train accidents?
A train accident may be caused by driver negligence, such as a train driver who falls asleep or is otherwise distracted or not paying attention and therefore fails to slow down, stop or alter course. Negligent track maintenance may also cause an accident of this kind to occur, if there is an object on the rails or if the rails themselves are defective. Another potential cause is negligent maintenance of the train itself. No matter the circumstances of your accident and injuries and whether you were injured in a train accident or at the train station, an experienced lawyer at our law offices can meet with you to talk to you about your case and options.
