We Know These Incidents Can Be Devastating

Train crashes are not as common as regular vehicle crashes, but they do happen. When they do occur, the results are often devastating for train passengers as well as anyone around the train at the time of the crash.

According to the Federal Railroad Administration, we can see that there were around 12,000 total train incidents across the US during the latest reporting year. These incidents caused:

  • Over 800 fatalities
  • Almost 9,000 injuries

Consider the size and weight of each train car. In a derailment or collision, victims can suffer from serious injuries. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries as a result of train incidents:

  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

These injuries can easily reach treatment costs of a hundred thousand dollars or more. Did you know that the first year of medical treatment for a serious spinal cord injury can ready over $1.1 million? There are also other expenses that a train crash victim needs to be aware of, including a loss of income if they cannot work while they recover.

*If a train is carrying hazardous materials, a train crash can become a mass casualty event that could affect anyone living or working near the crash site.

How Do These Crashes happen?

Train companies and regulatory agencies have a big responsibility. It is vital that regular inspections and maintenance are performed on both trains and tracks to prevent derailments and vehicle failure.

Operators should always be properly trained and should follow all laws regarding the operation of their vehicles. Under no circumstances should a train operator driver faster than allowed, operate recklessly in inclement weather, operating while impaired, or be distracted by their phones.
