Despite significant improvements in commercial and passenger rail technology and the ever-increasing safety standards of train travel, train accidents are still a serious risk in the United States. When you see a train as it roars past, you are acutely familiar with the inherent dangers that come with our vast rail system. Rail accidents occur more frequently than one might expect. Train accidents can come in many different forms, whether from commercially run trains, passenger rail, or urban transit.

Identifying Causes of Train Accidents in OKC

  • Conductor error
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Equipment failure
  • Structural or design problems
  • Violation of industry regulations
  • Negligence of others
  • Negligence in a third party’s selection of a carrier
  • Failure to maintain the system or its components

Traveling by rail, whether on commuter trains, subways, metro systems, or high-speed trains, is necessary for many Americans to get to and from work or other destinations. Commuter and cargo trains are both essential parts of public transportation and the U.S. economy. Locomotives serve a dual function as a method of economically moving cargo and passengers. However, crashes and derailments can be devastating and fatal, causing passengers and bystanders serious injuries. Unfortunately, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has identified human errors and track flaws as two of the main causes of train wrecks. These two factors account for more than 70% of all train accidents.
