What are U.S. railroad accident statistics?
According to the Federal Railroad Administration, in an average year in the United States, more than 3,000 train accidents occur leading to death, injury and property damage.
National statistics show that every two hours there is a train accident in the USA. Almost all of these accidents involve some type of property damage—and in some cases injury and death.
Almost all train accident claims and lawsuits are subject to a host of varying laws and legal standards, often involving several parties pointing the finger at overall responsibility.
Half of all railroad accidents occur at crossings that are inadequately protected. According to the Federal Railroad Administration, more than 80% of railroad crossings don’t have sufficient warning signals and devices.
