Trains are a relatively safe form of ground transportation. Train operators and passengers don’t have to worry about negotiating highways or avoiding reckless drivers as automobile drivers do. They don’t have a risk of sinking as boats do, or a risk of crashing in mid-air. As long as trains stay on a clear track, they are typically safe from accidents. However, trains do occasionally derail or collide with interfering objects on the track, causing significant damage and injury to anyone on board or nearby. If you have been involved in a train accident, consider contacting a personal injury attorney immediately to help you with your claim. Watch video in link below

A train that crashes into another can also jolt passengers so severely as to cause severe injury or death. Freight trains that crash or turn over may spill their contents onto a road, blocking traffic or causing drivers to crash. Sometimes freight train collisions involve a toxic chemical spill which could contaminate the crash site and result in a mandatory evacuation of the surrounding area.
