Common Causes Of Railroad And Train Accidents In Missouri And Kansas
Kansas City residents are at an increased risk of being injured in a railroad accident simply because the city is host to more rail traffic than any other U.S. city in terms of tonnage. Some of the most common causes of accidents that cause recoverable injuries include:
- Train malfunction or defect
- Negligence on behalf of the railroad company
- Conductor error
- Lack of railroad crossing bars
- Crossings that are improperly marked
- Railroad tracks insufficiently maintained
- Train derailments
How Will You Recover What You Deserve?
It is also not uncommon for trains to be traveling at illegal speeds, particularly when crews are under pressure to meet a deadline. When negligence is involved, you may be entitled to compensation, but you will only recover the full compensation you deserve with the guidance and representation of an experienced personal injury attorney who can fight for your best possible outcome.
