//Why do railroad train accidents occur?

There are a number of reasons why train accidents occur.  The two most common include:

  • Derailments: Derailments occur more often than people think and are often the cause of extensive damage to rolling stock and the railroad track.
  • Train/car collisions and railroad crossing accidents:  Accidents that take place at a railroad crossing involving a train and a car result in substantial damage—primarily, because of the size and weight of the locomotive.

Train accident claims are a unique sub-specialty area where without expertise and knowledge quickly escalate in both time and money to resolve.  Any claim that involves a train or railroad should be reviewed and explored by a railroad claims expert to ensure that all questions and allegations can be answered.
