St. Louis Train Accident Attorney

Missouri’s rail system is integral to the state’s economic health and the quality of life of its residents. In St. Louis, freight trains travel through the area, quickly moving products in and out of the city, while residents rely upon the city’s MetroLink service to get to and from work, school, home, and elsewhere.

Although trains have become a way of life for so many people in Missouri, they are not without risk. Riders, pedestrians, and motor vehicle drivers can all fall victim to train accidents. At railway crossings alone, statistics show that 105 people were injured, and 13 people died in Missouri train collisions. Often, train accidents result from negligence, and under Missouri law, victims have a right to seek compensation for their injuries.

If you were injured following a Missouri train incident, a St. Louis train accident lawyer from Morgan & Morgan can advocate for you.

  • Types of St. Louis Train Accidents

    There are several common causes of train accidents in Missouri, including:

    Derailments

    The most common cause of train accidents nationwide, derailments occur when a train car comes off the tracks. Derailments can occur because of:

    • Colliding with something on the track.
    • Operational errors, such as speeding.
    • Mechanical failures, including broken rails, faulty wheels, and defective brakes.
    • Deliberate derailments to avoid something more serious.

    Collisions with Other Trains

    Miscommunication and signaling errors can result in train-on-train collisions.

    Motor Vehicle Collisions

    Collisions between motor vehicles and trains are all too common. They usually occur at railroad crossings. The cause is usually related to faulty or missing warning signs or a conductor’s failure to warn motorists of their approach.

    They can also be caused by:

    • Mechanical issues cause the vehicle to stall or get stuck.
    • Drivers ignoring lowered crossing gates.
    • A driver’s attempt to beat a train at the crossing.

    Pedestrian Collisions

    A leading cause of railway deaths is pedestrian accidents, and while the industry often blames these accidents on the victim, it can also be the result of unsafe crossings and conductor errors.
