How Can I Win My Train Accident Case?

As the victim in a train accident case, you will be expected to provide proof of the train company's liability. In other words, you will have to establish that the actions of the train operator or company contributed to a preventable accident. Now how exactly do you go about this?

In any suit brought against a public transportation entity, it is necessary to prove that the entity was negligent. Whether it is the negligence of train operators, negligence in ensuring that computer operating systems are working without error, or negligence in properly maintaining and/or updating train equipment, train accidents are often caused because all necessary precautions and safety issues were not addressed prior to the train's usage. A knowledgeable Maryland personal injury attorney can assist you through this complicated and difficult process.

Supporting Your Case

By conducting a thorough investigation of your case, your attorney should be able to yield evidence that will form the backbone of your legal argument. Depending on the circumstances which led to the accident, you may be able to establish the following:

  • Computerized signal systems failed
  • Improperly maintained train tracks threw the train off course
  • Outdated railcars or other equipment necessary for the train's proper, and most efficient, operation malfunctioned
  • Faulty train signals placed one train directly in the path of another
  • Operator was distracted or inattentive
