Birmingham Train Accident Attorney
Traveling or moving goods by train remains an integral part of our nation’s transportation system, with nearly 160,000 miles of track throughout the country, making ours the largest rail network in the world. More than 3,500 miles of those tracks run through Alabama, and there are nearly 6,000 railroad crossings throughout the state, creating a dangerous situation, particularly for drivers and pedestrians.
Most railroad injuries and fatalities occur at railroad crossings and involve vehicle and train collisions or occur when pedestrians find themselves walking near or on railroad property. However, many injury risks are associated with train accidents, ranging from minor to severe, and can even involve passengers.
If you were injured or lost a loved one in a train accident, a Birmingham train accident lawyer from Morgan & Morgan will not only help you determine who may be liable for your injuries but fight to see that you are compensated.

Common Causes of Train Accidents in Birmingham
Train accidents in Birmingham can take many forms, from derailments and collisions to pedestrian injuries and railroad worker injuries, caused by:
- mechanical failures
- electrical failures
- train operator negligence
- distracted operation
- fatigued conductors
- inadequate safety features at railroad crossings,
- unprotected crossings
- improper communication or signaling
- negligent motorists
- inadequate track maintenance
- design issues
- impaired pedestrians
- distracted pedestrians
- malfunctioning lights, signals, and gates
Beyond train accidents, it is not uncommon for passengers to become injured even when no “accident” in the traditional sense occurs.
For example, unsecured overhead luggage can fall and injure a passenger, a passenger can slip and fall either on the train or somewhere else on railroad property, or a passenger may be assaulted on railroad property, causing injury.
Regardless of how you were injured, a Birmingham train accident lawyer can determine the cause and determine who may be responsible.
