Ohio Railroad Accident Attorney
The U.S. plays host to thousands of railway accidents each year
In 2019, there were 2,217 incidents at public highway-rail crossings in the U.S. that resulted in 299 deaths and 793 injuries, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
In some cases, reckless drivers disregard warning signs and attempt to outrun an oncoming train and in others, people trespass along a railroad right-of-way. But there are cases in which railroad crossings were improperly marked or vegetation obscured an otherwise effective warning signal. Some railroad crossings are poorly lit or even completely unlit, and in some cases, human error is to blame for the tragedy on the rails.
