In Alaska, approximately 3,000 train accidents and 1,000 deaths occur each year. Even a minor incident with a train can cause catastrophic injury or death because of the massive size and weight of a locomotive.
A train accident can affect just one person — such as when someone slips off a platform and is run over by a train — or it can affect an entire community, as in the case of a toxic chemical spill. The effects of passenger train derailments are widespread as well, often leaving hundreds of victims.
Why Should You Hire a Train Accident Lawyer?
Train accident cases are complicated and often involve multiple responsible parties, making it difficult for individuals to obtain compensation. Additionally, train accidents are subject to different laws, standards, and statutes of limitations than most vehicle accident lawsuits. All of these things can make the legal aftermath of a train accident seem overwhelming.
