Hurt in a Train Accident?
Though train accidents don't happen as frequently as auto accidents
or get the publicity of airplane accidents, thousands of train accidents
occur each year in the United States. The most common type of train accident
is derailment, followed by impacts with other objects at highway-rail
crossings. In South Carolina, Charleston has many train accidents in a
year compared to other regions.

Common Carrier Laws Apply to All Public Transportation
Public transportation companies must comply with common carrier laws to
ensure the safety of their passengers and/or cargo. Failure to adhere
to such regulations makes the carrier liable for any injuries that result
from their negligence.

- Debris on the tracks
- Excessive speeds
- Failure to use horns or lights
Just as train accidents can result from a wide range of causes, they can
also cause a
catastrophic injuries for victims. From a single person
slipping and falling into a train's path to a chemical spill that can impact an entire
community, the scope of each train accident can be vastly different. That's
