Due to their large size and weight, trains can cause a variety of accident injuries as well as large amounts of property damage, and sometimes even fatalities. California has been identified as one of the top five states with the highest number of train accidents per year. A majority of these accidents are caused by derailments, owing to the poor maintenance of the trains and their equipment.
Common causes of derailment are damaged tracks, problems with the train wheels or the train itself, weather conditions, and collisions with objects on the tracks or with another train. Regardless of the cause of the accident, determining who is at fault can be a complicated matter. Investigating the incident and gathering all pertinent evidence is an integral part of the deliberation process. This requires specialized knowledge and legal skills specific to these types of cases.
