Railroad Accidents Still Pose a Real, Modern-Day Danger
Railroads have seen their heyday and are being increasingly replaced by commercial trucks and 18-wheelers. However, commuter and transport trains still pose a very real threat to drivers in Texas and elsewhere in the country. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a driver is 20 times more likely to be involved in an accident with a train than with another car. In 2012, there were 1,960 train collisions nationwide, resulting in 930 injuries and 271 deaths. Trains have an enormous weight and power, and a collision with a train almost inevitably causes more injury than a collision with another car. Because of the seriousness of train accident injuries, if you or a loved one has been injured in such an accident in North Texas, you should immediately contact an experienced Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury attorney.
