Pittsburgh still has trains running all throughout the city and the surrounding areas. As convenient as trains can be, they can also be very dangerous. The engineers of commuter trains might have not gotten a lot of sleep before their recent trip, are taking medications affecting their vision, or are simply distracted while operating the train. All of these issues can wind up leading to a tragic accident, as we’ve seen too many times before in the Keystone State. A Beaver train accidents attorney from the firm of Shenderovich, Shenderovich and Fishman can answer all of your questions following a crash and represent you in a lawsuit seeking compensation for your injuries.
Train accidents are so incredibly dangerous and tragic because of the sheer size of the train, its weight, and the speed at which it is traveling. You also have to add in the scene of the crash, debris on the rails, the weather at the time of the crash, other trains in the area and many other factors, including the state of the engineer when the trash occurred.
Train accidents most often lead to the first couple of cars behind the engine derailing or becoming crushed into each other. Passengers can easily be thrown about the train cars because of a lack of seat belts and other restraints. Train cars have tables, chairs, bars, windows and many other items that can severely injure, maim, decapitate, and cause amputation to the riders on the train.
The most severe train accidents can result in the cars rolling over onto their roof, being cut in half, rolling down the side of a mountain and much more. Train accidents in Pennsylvania are frightening. Victims of these accidents often wind up disabled, paralyzed, and can even succumb to their injuries.
