Top causes of train accidents

Some auto accidents in Fayetteville, Burlington, Durham, Greensboro, Raleigh and Charlotte involve a train or railroad. These devastating collisions can cause injuries to many people, including passengers, drivers, the train operator and train passengers. We at Lanier Law Group, P.A. have helped injury victims in North Carolina since 1995, so we know how to assist pedestrians and motorists injured in train accidents. Here are some of the top causes of train accidents:

  • Improper maintenance: Railroad systems are made up of complex mechanical components. It is essential that tracks, trains and cars be maintained and inspected on a regular basis to prevent malfunction.
  • Human error: If a train operator in Fayetteville is not alert, he or she may not see a vehicle on the tracks up ahead. Train operators who consume alcohol or drugs may exhibit slowed reaction time and unpredictable behavior.
  • Mechanical failure: Train manufacturers sometimes do not identify mechanical defects until it is too late.
