Railway Accidents
Colorado Railway Accident Attorneys

As Denver’s population grows, alternative transportation like light rail continues to gain in popularity. Not surprisingly, Colorado voters recently approved funding to dramatically increase Colorado’s light rail system. This expansion, coupled with growth of populations into rural areas with poorly marked railroad crossings, has lead to an increase in the number of train related accidents.
Consider the following statistics regarding railroad accidents:

  • Every 90 minutes, there is an accident involving a train collision or derailment.
  • Every year there are approximately 3,000 train related accidents
  • Every year approximately 1,000 people lose their lives as a result of a train accident
  • According to the Federal Railroad Administration, mare than 80% of railroad crossings do not have adequate warning devices.

Train accident cases present unique difficulties. There are many overlapping federal and state regulations governing rail transport and highway crossings. Further, these complicated cases usually require the aid of expert accident reconstructionist.
