Train Accidents

Train Accidents

Railroad accidents cause serious injury and death. Given its massive weight, a train takes 18 football fields to stop from a speed of 55 mph. To prevent accidents, railroads must exercise a high duty of care and comply with state and federal safety regulations.

Railroad Crossing Accidents. Illinois is second overall in the nation for highway-railway accidents. In the past five-years, 364 Illinois cities have reportedly had a train-vehicle collision occur at a grade crossing. Improper signage or a mechanical malfunction of a safety device at railroad crossings can lead to vehicle collisions. People involved in a train collision are 40 times more likely to suffer death than a vehicle collision.
