Determining the Cause & Liability of Your Train Accident
There are many possible causes for a train accident or railroad crossing accident. Determining what caused your accident is a necessary step in determining who is responsible for the accident. Train accidents can be caused by damaged tracks, distracted or fatigued engineers, overweight cargo, or faulty emergency equipment. Railroad crossing collisions can occur because of crumbling infrastructure or broken warning systems like defective signals or gates. Other possibilities include crossing signs being obscured, objects protruding from the train, and engineers not sounding their horns when approaching a railroad crossing. In some cases, multiple factors contribute to the accident.
As the cause of your train accident becomes more complex, so does determining liability. Depending on the cause, the railroad company, the train engineer, a third party, or a combination may be found liable. Protect your legal rights to just compensation by speaking with our Texas train accident lawyers before settling with the train’s insurance company.
