Commuter and freight train accidents are usually very serious and even deadly. Our San Diego personal injury lawyers can help.
Because of a train’s large size, it can be disastrous if you are involved in a train collision. Selecting an attorney is hard enough, but you must make sure you hire a competent train accident attorney if you or someone you know is injured or killed in a serious train accident in San Diego or California.
Freight Train Accidents:
Freight trains are what you generally think of then you think of a “train.” They carry all types of good and supplies to different cities. These trains are very long and have numerous boxcars. They can be very dangerous if they collide with a person or car, and the collision can often be fatal to anybody the train comes into contact with or for the operators and workers on the train.
Commuter Train Accidents:
Trains are also used to transport people from one place to another via commuter train. San Diego has a train system, most notably the North County Transportation District’s (NCTD) Coaster that runs from Oceanside to San Diego, that people can ride to different destinations. It is another form of public transportation that San Diego provides. Many people use this train to travel to and from Downtown San Diego or use the Amtrak train system to travel to Los Angeles and Orange County. Although it is a great service, many passengers, cars, and pedestrians have been involved in a collision with the train in the past.
