Due to their massive scale and payloads, train accidents are almost always highly destructive and devastating events. A railroad accident can occur at any time, in any place and can include any number of tragedies.

The Train Collision
A train collision at a railroad crossing is the most common type of train accident. A train collision can occur with another train, a car or truck or with a pedestrian, and no matter the specific circumstances, the results are usually catastrophic. There are so many different players and so many different laws that must be factored in. The railroad will work with their insurance companies and attorneys to minimize their liability and pay out the least amount of money as possible. That is why it is crucial that you speak with a knowledgeable train accident attorney.
