What Causes Train Accidents?
There are several causes of train accidents, with some of the most common being human errors, technical malfunctions, and weather conditions. Human errors, such as conductor mistakes, signaling failures, and dispatch errors, tend to be the most common causes we see in our practice.
Technical malfunctions, such as brake failures, signal malfunctions, or track defects, can also put the safety of train passengers and crew members at risk.
Of course, there are some situations we have absolutely zero control over, too. Weather conditions like heavy rain or extreme winds can also cause train accidents by causing track obstructions, slippery rails, or improper visibility. This makes it difficult for conductors to operate their trains safely and leads to accidents.
Typical Injuries We See After Train Accidents
The injuries that result from train accidents can be devastating and, unfortunately, quite long-lasting. Its victims may suffer from critical injuries such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, fractures, soft tissue damage, or loss of limb. These injuries can lead to a lifetime of physical therapy, surgeries, and rehabilitation.
Train accident victims can also suffer from emotional distress, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after a train accident.
As you might expect, these emotional injuries can be just as damaging as the physical injuries—and may require extended therapy and counseling.
