Not always top of mind these days, but still a danger: train collisions

iStock-171270673.pngMany people likely don't think about getting involved in a train collision as often as say, an accident with a truck or another motor vehicle. While these collisions may not occur as often, they are still a danger to motorists, and can be extremely dangerous. 

A recent media report on train accidents notes that there were 116 crossing collisions during 2016 in Indiana, with 11 deaths occurring in the process. Reportedly, Indiana sadly ranks sixth out of the 50 states in train-related fatalities. However, as the "Crossroads of America" this fact is not too surprising. 

Of course, it is vital that safety officials do all they can to make every crossing across Indiana 100% safe. While it is certainly true that reckless behavior by drivers and pedestrians near and on the tracks is a direct injury contributor for many people hit by trains, that is not always true.

Sometimes, for example, crossings may not have aduqate or visible signage, gates can malfunction, warning lights may be inoperative-- a number of factors can increase danger and lead to injuries.

Whether a collision is caused by another motor vehicle driver's negligence, a malfunction with the tracks or tain itself, or due to an issue with warning signs for the train crossing, you and your family deserve to have your case examined to potentially discover any negligent acts that may have caused the train collision.  Questions or concerns regarding any aspect of a collision at an Indiana train crossing can be directed to the proven attorneys at Tabor Law Firm in Indianapolis.
