According to statistics from the Federal Railroad Administration, Illinois and Missouri are among the most dangerous states in the nation in terms of railroad crossing accidents, placing in the top five states for the highest number of crossing fatalities in 2011.
When a dangerous railroad crossing causes an accident, fast action by an experienced team of personal injury attorneys and investigators can make a critical difference in discovering all the causes of the accident and obtaining just financial recovery for the victims and their families.
Accidents that occur at highway-rail grade crossings make up the majority of all train-related deaths each year – an estimated amount of 300 to 400 fatalities annually. Someone should be held responsible, including those who maintain the tracks, the crossing signals, or the roadways leading up to the tracks.
