Car Accidents in Texas
According to recent studies, about 5,800 train-car collisions occur annually throughout the United States. Most of these collisions take place at a railroad crossing. Because trains are so large and weigh tons, it can take them over a mile to completely brake, which is why accidents can be catastrophic or deadly.
Depending on the cause of the accident and the extent of the injuries, victims may qualify to file personal injury lawsuits if they were not at fault.
