About Railroad Accidents
Railroad accidents occur when a train collides with another motor vehicle (e.g., a car, truck, motorcycle, etc.), when a train comes in contact with a pedestrian or bicyclist either at a train station or on the tracks, or when a train is derailed. Railroad accidents may be caused by:
- Improperly marked railroad crossings
- Lack of safety gates
- Conductor error
- Lack of railroad track maintenance
- Train defect or malfunction
Whatever the cause of your accident, we will find it and we will fight for your compensation.
Train accident victims experience severe injuries including concussions, loss of limbs, brain trauma, spinal cord damage, neck and shoulder injuries, lacerations and deep cuts, fractures, internal injuries, soft tissue damage and death. Missouri railroads are regulated by federal train regulations. However, many train companies deliberately violate these regulations.
