Who is responsible for the train accident?

Because there can be many responsible parties, train accident lawsuits are notoriously difficult. That’s okay, though, because the railroad injury lawyers at Goldman & Daszkal have the experience and knowledge to tackle these tough cases.


One or more of the following parties may be responsible:

  • The railroad company. If a railroad company employee fails to keep passengers safe, the railroad company can be sued for negligence.
  • The track owner. The owner of the track might be liable if an accident occurs because of a dangerous condition on the track.
  • The manufacturer of the train or track. The railroad track or train manufacturer could be held liable if the accident occurred because of a defective train or track component.
  • Motor vehicle driver or pedestrian. A vehicle driver or pedestrian could be liable if the accident was caused by a driver or pedestrian in the path of an oncoming train.

Types of train accidents

A train accident can affect just one person, such as when someone slips off a platform and is run over by a train. They also can affect the whole community, such as with a toxic chemical spill. When passenger trains derail, there can be hundreds of victims. There are many types of train accidents that can cause serious injuries or death, including:

Derailments: Derailments are almost always the result of someone’s failure to follow safety standards but can be caused by improper track permissions, faulty tracks, obstacles on the tracks, or too much cargo weight.

Railroad crossing accidents: As experienced railroad injury lawyers, we have seen causes of railroad crossing accidents include defective signals or gates, trains that fail to sound their horns when approaching crossings, trains that fail to use their lights when approaching crossings, trains parked too close to a crossing, crossings obstructed by plants and other objects, and objects protruding from the train.

No collision: Pedestrians and bystanders can slip and fall under trains and be crushed. Additionally, employees who work on or around train tracks have a heightened likelihood of injury.
