Traveling by train, over both short and long distances, can be a convenient, fun way to travel. Many people use trains to commute, while others use trains to travel for vacation and to visit with family. While trains can offer a lot, they do have a number of dangers associated with them, and accidents can occur whether you are a passenger aboard the train or you are in a vehicle near the tracks. If you or a loved one has been injured due to any type of train accident, you should call a San Bernardino train accident lawyer as soon as possible.

Train accidents can occur for many different reasons, and they can have a variety of causes. Our attorneys will be able to make sense of the accident and will be able to help you proceed with your case.
One type of accident is a collision with another train. Although this is rare, it does happen on occasion. Accidents such as these are often due to negligence on the part of the railroad. Another possible type of accident is a derailment. While this is another rare type of accident, the past is full of cases involving train derailment. Outdated train tracks, line of sight issues, and mechanical failure aboard the train are possibilities as well. Unmaintained tracks are another problem, and problems with the rails, whether they are outdated or they simply have not received proper maintenance, can cause derailments and other accidents with the train. Injuries as a passenger in a train accident can be mild to severe, and they can even result in death.
In some cases, people who are not passengers on the train receive serious injuries. Collisions with automobiles, motorcycles, and even bicycles and pedestrians do happen from time to time.
