Train Accidents Can Affect an Entire Community
While it is certainly possible for only one person to be injured in a train accident, many of these misfortunes end up harming numerous people—sometimes even entire cities. In these cases, there may be grounds for a class action or mass tort lawsuit in order for all of the victims and their families to receive an appropriate recovery.
A train accident can involve:
- Slip and falls – If an unsafe railroad track causes someone to fall and get stuck, they could be hit by the train. Similarly, passengers on the train sometimes slip on unguarded platforms and suffer severe damage
- Toxic exposure – Trains carrying chemical cargo sometimes crash, spilling their cargo. These accidents often do irreparable harm to the environment, and expose any local populace to harmful substances.
- Derailment – Railroad tracks require frequent inspection and maintenance to ensure that the train can safely pass. If the tracks are not maintained, or the train operator is negligent, the train can derail and injure numerous people. The situation is worse if the train had passenger cars, which could end up harming hundreds of people inside.
