Train Accidents in Texas
Approximately 824 fatalities result from train accidents every year in the United States. Whenever drivers or pedestrians are involved in train accidents, they’re likely to sustain critical injuries that could be life-threatening. When trains are braking, it takes them more than half of a mile to come to a complete stop, which is why these accidents are so dangerous. When pedestrians or drivers are crossing train tracks, it’s important for them to be aware of their surroundings because trains operators cannot suddenly stop the train.
Depending on the cause of the accident, injured victims may be able to file personal injury lawsuits if they were not at fault.
