Travelling by train is one of the safest forms of transportation available in Jefferson County. Unfortunately, if and when an accident does occur, the results are often catastrophic. Anyone who has suffered a loss in a Jefferson County railroad accident would be well advised to speak with a skilled train accident injury attorney to discuss his or her legal options.

Causes of Train Accidents in Jefferson County

There are a number of train accident causes. Some of the most common causes of train accidents include:

  • Equipment Failure: Defective cables, relays, brakes and signals can cause serious injury train accidents.
  • Customer Behavior: Pedestrians and bicyclists would be well advised to stay off of train tracks at all times and to not lean too closely to where a train will arrive. Injured victims of train accidents who are at fault for the collision because of intoxication and poor judgment may have difficulty pursuing compensation for the injuries they have suffered.
  • Worker Behavior: All transit personnel must adhere to the procedures and policies of the company they work for. Speeding, driving inattentively or fatigued can cause a serious train collision.
  • Poor Maintenance: When a part on the train fails it must be determined whether poor maintenance on the part of the transit authority caused or contributed to such failure.
