Why Are Train-on-Train Accidents So Serious?
Collisions involving multiple trains are almost always more serious than other types of train accidents due to numerous factors:
- Trains generate an incredible amount of force even at slower speeds. It’s said that the force of a 30-car freight train hitting a car is the same as the force of that same car crushing a soda can. When more than one train is involved, this can spell disaster.
- Train passengers typically cannot anticipate or expect a train-on-train collision. In standard car accidents involving a train, the driver and passenger may be able to properly brace for an accident by visibly anticipating it. However, passengers in a train have significantly lower visibility of the conditions outside the train. This means that in cases of train-on-train accidents, they may not be in the safest position for impact – resulting in more serious injuries.
- More people are involved in a train-on-train accident. A collision involving two trains may affect potentially hundreds of passengers.
- A train-on-train collision can result in other accidents. The sheer force of two trains colliding can result in more serious accidents, such as derailments or other accidents at railroad crossings.
A Train-on-Train Accident Can Change Your Life
Train-on-train accidents almost always have a huge effect on any passengers involved. They can often suffer serious, life-threatening injuries, such as:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Severed limbs
- Traumatic brain injuries
Even if injuries are minor, a train-on-train accident can traumatize passengers significantly, causing issues such as:
- Nightmares and trouble sleeping
- Survivor’s guilt
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
These health conditions can affect a person’s life for months, years, or even decades. As a result, we should not expect these people to have to deal with the legal aftermath of a train-on-train accident without the assistance of a skilled train accident attorney.
