While railroad accidents may not be as common as motor vehicle accidents, when they occur they typically result in horrific carnage, catastrophic injuries and loss of life. The massive weight, speed and force involved in a railroad or train accident means that these collisions impact all aspects of a railroad accident victim's life. Although the number of train collisions involving switching malfunctions, defective railroad crossings and children playing on railroad tracks are not nearly as common as collisions involving cars, trucks or SUVs, there are still 3,000 train collisions in which about a thousand people die and many more are injured.

Causes of Train Accidents

While many train accidents involve collisions or derailments, a significant number of other accidents occur at train rail crossings. There are extensive regulations designed to ensure that train crossings are safe. Our Kentucky train accident attorneys have extensive knowledge of these regulations so that we are able to identify violations when investigating collisions at railroad crossings.

The most common causes of Kentucky train crossing accidents include:

  • Defectively designed crossings
  • Inattentive train operation
  • Improper speed when approaching a crossing
  • Inadequate or shoddily maintained signal
  • Insufficient barriers or warnings

When someone is injured in a train accident whether a derailment, crossing accident, or collision with another train, severe life-altering injuries typically occur.

Pursuing Compensation as a Train or Railroad Employee

The legal grounds for pursuing an injury claim arising out of a train or railroad accident in Kentucky depends on the type of collision as well as the identity of the victim. Anyone who works on a train or railroad knows that working on a train is among the most dangerous occupations. If you are injured in the course of your employment, your rights to pursue a claim for financial compensation are governed by the Federal Employer's Liability Act (FELA). This special law protecting railroad employees was created out of an acknowledgement of the hazardous work environment that faces railroad workers.
