Myrtle Beach Train Accident Attorney
South Carolina’s railway systems have so much to offer. From using the train to commute to and from school and work or to travel outside the state, Myrtle Beach residents rely on this important piece of the state’s transportation infrastructure.
The beauty of trains is that they offer some of the most convenient and affordable ways to travel. However, trains pose a significant risk to passengers and others outside the train, from pedestrians to motor vehicle drivers.
Whether it’s a defective piece of machinery or an error in judgment on the part of a train conductor, there are many ways in which an accident can occur, causing injury and even death, with train accidents causing 954 fatalities in 2022, according to the National Safety Council.

What Causes a Myrtle Beach Train Accident?
For most people, thoughts of a train accident conjure images of a collision involving a train and a car at a railroad crossing. While railroad crossing collisions can and do happen, there are a range of other injuries associated with train travel, including injuries from slips and falls, sudden braking, and unsecured overhead luggage.
Other causes include:
- collisions with other trains
- runaway train cars
- failure to properly 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
- mechanical failure
Regardless of how minor or significant a train accident may be, when they do occur, passengers and others involved in the accident have the potential to sustain serious injuries, which can ultimately lead to life-altering financial loss.
Thankfully, in South Carolina, depending on the specifics of the incident, train accident victims can seek compensation to cover the following:
- medical expenses
- lost wages
- loss of earning capacity
- physical or emotional pain and suffering
- diminished quality of life
- property loss or damage
- loss of consortium
- long-term care costs
