Charleston Train Accident Attorney

Trains have long been an essential part of our country’s transportation infrastructure, and today, the United States continues to have the largest rail network in the world, boasting nearly 160,000 miles of track.

From freight lines to metropolitan rails, trains keep our economies humming and help countless Americans get to where they need to go. However, train accidents do happen, even in Charleston, and they often end up causing serious injury to those involved, whether they are passengers or innocent pedestrians and motorists who were in the wrong place at the wrong time.  

A Charleston train accident lawyer from Morgan & Morgan can help you determine who is liable for causing the injuries and damages you sustained because of a train accident in South Carolina.

  • Common Charleston Train Accident Causes

    Every train accident is different, with varying circumstances to be considered. However, any Charleston train accident lawyer will tell you that there are some very common causes, usually preventable.

    Here are just a few:

    • derailments
    • collisions with motor vehicles
    • collisions with other trains 
    • runaway train cars
    • failure to maintain stations and railways
    • improperly parked train cars
    • uncontrolled, sudden movements
    • overlooked or ignored safety hazards
    • inadequate crossing design and maintenance
    • negligent or reckless train conductors

    While train accidents are rare, they do still occur, and the injuries sustained are often quite devastating for accident victims and their families.

    Thankfully, South Carolina law allows train accident victims to seek compensation in certain instances to cover the following:

    • medical expenses
    • missed wages
    • loss of earning capacity
    • physical or emotional pain and suffering
    • diminished quality of life
    • property damage or loss
    • loss of consortium
    • long-term care costs
