Train Accidents in Mississippi

, Bay St. Louis, MS - Ryan Moran Fatally Struck by Train on Lakeshore Rd, Germany Law Firm PLLC

Every year, across the United States, around 800 people are killed and thousands more sustain injuries in accidents that involve trains. When contrasted with the death and injury counts created by collisions involving only motor vehicles, these totals may seem rather small but, in reality, still equal two deadly train incidents each day.

Most of the train accidents that happen within the United States take place at railway crossings. An automobile can stall on the tracks, traffic might be gridlocked causing a car to be stopped at a crossing without any safety bars to prevent this from happening. Once in a while, when railway crossings are not marked with flashing lights or safety bars, automobiles can crash into an oncoming train in the darkness.

There are multiple types of train accidents that can occur in a wide variety of situations. Some of the more common examples include:

  • Collisions at railroad crossings
  • Train derailments
  • Trains colliding with motor vehicles
  • Train colliding with other trains
  • Trains colliding with pedestrians or cyclists 

Amtrak conductors and drivers, railway companies, mechanics, railway maintenance workers, and other railway employees are considered common carriers, meaning they have a duty to the public to make sure that their trains are as secure and danger-free as possible. 

When a railroad conductor, operator, or other worker breaches the burden of care they owe to their passengers, along with others in the area, and that breach is shown to be the immediate cause of your injuries, you quite probably have grounds for a legitimate train injury claim.
