What Are the Most Common Causes of Train Accidents?

Train accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. When negligence is involved, victims can hold the at-fault party accountable and seek compensation for their damages.

Common causes of train accidents include:

  • Train operator error
  • Train conductor negligence
  • Driver negligence (including failure to yield)
  • Defective train parts
  • Track defects
  • Improper train maintenance
  • Improperly secured cargo
  • Obstructions on the tracks
  • Signal malfunctions
  • Improperly maintained crossings
  • And more

Who is Liable for a Train Accident?

Liability in a train accident will depend on the cause of the accident.

For example, if a train accident is caused by a train conductor’s negligence, the conductor and/or the conductor’s employer may be liable. If a train accident is caused by defective train parts, the manufacturer and/or distributor of the parts may be liable. If a train accident is caused by a track defect, the company responsible for maintaining the tracks may be liable. And so on.

At Burnetti, P.A., our Orlando train accident attorneys can conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of your accident to determine who is liable. We can then help you file a personal injury or wrongful death claim to pursue the compensation you are owed.

What Types of Damages Are Available to Train Accident Victims?

Train accident victims can seek both economic and non-economic damages in a personal injury claim. Economic damages are those that are quantifiable and have a specific dollar value, such as medical bills and lost wages. Non-economic damages are those that are not as easily quantifiable and do not have a specific dollar value, such as pain and suffering.

Depending on the details of your case, you may be entitled to various types of compensation, including but not limited to:

  • Emergency medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost income/wages
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost quality of life
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Disability
  • Loss of consortium
  • Funeral/burial costs (in wrongful death cases)
  • Loss of companionship (in wrongful death cases)

When you turn to our firm, our attorneys can review your case and help you understand what types of damages you may be eligible to recover.

How Long Do I Have to File a Train Accident Lawsuit in Florida?

In Florida, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims, including those involving train accidents, is generally 4 years from the date of the accident. If a train accident resulted in a wrongful death, the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim is generally 2 years from the date of the person’s death. There are exceptions to these deadlines, however, so it is best to contact an attorney as soon as possible.
