Train Accidents

Atlanta Train Accident Attorney

A car hit by a train

There are approximately 700 railroads lines in the United States making up over 150,000 miles of railroad tracks, with thousands of railroad crossings, across the country. Train accidents can often cause deadly accidents or result in serious life-changing injuries. The force of a 30-car freight train hitting a car can be compared to the force of a car driving over and crushing a soda can.

Operation Lifesaver, a national nonprofit rail safety education group, reports that nearly every 3 hours a train hits a person or vehicle. National statistics show that the driver of a car involved in a vehicle-train accident is nearly 20 times more likely to be killed in the crash compared to a collision with another vehicle.

Most train accidents are fatal

Train accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. Most accidents occur at railroad crossings that have faulty or inadequate warning devices. Drivers (and pedestrians) may pass through a railroad crossing or over a railroad track with a false sense of security not knowing that a train is approaching. It can take a train over 1 mile to brake and come to a complete stop when traveling at average speed.

The Federal Railroad Administration compiles statistics from train accidents nationwide.  Their reports reveal that railroad-related trespass deaths are on the rise with an increase of almost 20% in 1 year’s time.  Similarly, injuries caused by trains saw an increase of more than 10% during the same time period.

There are almost 300 railroad accidents each year in Georgia.  Of those, roughly 10% of those railroad accidents resulted in death.
