Hundreds of people are killed in train accidents every year, and thousands more suffer injuries ranging in severity from discomforting to life-altering. These injuries can even occur in relatively minor crashes because of the lack of safety features, like airbags, that most vehicles provide, as well as the sheer number of passengers on board. However, pedestrians and motorists are also at risk when they get trapped on the tracks, or if a defective gate or signal doesn’t alert them to an oncoming train. No matter the cause of your injuries, if you were seriously injured in a train crash you deserve the chance to fight for the compensation you deserve.
