Birmingham Railroad Accident Attorneys
Railroads can be very dangerous. Despite many laws that have been passed to protect people walking or driving near railroads, accidents still occur. Due to the size of trains, these accidents can be much larger, more destructive, and even more deadly that other types of accidents. The Federal Railroad Administration reported that there were 2,017 crossing accidents in 2010. Of these accidents, 849 people were injured, and 256 were killed. Train accidents can be caused by a variety of factors, but the leading causes are human error and problems with the track, signals, and equipment.
