Train Derailment Attorney

Train operators must carefully monitor their vehicles’ progress on the rails, making any adjustments necessary to prevent derailment accidents. This includes paying attention to their trains’ speed, obstacles on the rails, and problems with tracks that may cause locomotives to jump the rails. Should they fail to do so, it can lead to destructive accidents that can injure and even kill any passengers and crew members aboard the train.

If you or someone you love has sustained an injury in a train derailment accident, the individual or company responsible for this incident may be held legally liable for your injury costs. For additional information about how we may be able to assist you in filing a claim seeking the justice you deserve, contact the Denver train derailment lawyers of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., today by calling (303) 423-1770.

Causes of Train Derailment Accidents

Train derailments are often the result of preventable errors on behalf of negligent railroad employees, improper company policies, or irresponsible parts manufacturers. These accidents may be caused by the following errors:

  • Conductors failing to heed speed warnings or track damage warnings
  • Inadequately maintained train tracks
  • Untrained railroad crew members
  • Mechanical defects or malfunctions
  • Improper train maintenance

Train derailment accidents can be devastating, but the party responsible for the incident should be held accountable for whatever injuries they caused.
