Phoenix Train Defects Attorneys

Most people feel relatively safe when boarding a passenger train, understanding that the train follows along a predetermined path and does not have to navigate in and out of traffic. Sadly, malfunctions can cause both long trips and daily commutes to turn into dangerous incidents. Trains may travel hundreds of thousands of miles each year, back and forth across local routes or across the entire country. Over time, parts may potentially break down and malfunction, causing potentially devastating accidents.

Causes of Railroad Accidents

Each train is different. Whether a train traces back and forth over a path through the city each day or travels across the country, passengers are still at risk for injury from defective parts. Train accidents can be caused by a variety of defects and malfunctioning parts, including:

  • Brake malfunction
  • Electrical malfunction
  • Car detachment
  • Horn failure
  • Lights failure
  • Improperly secured cargo
  • Communications failure
  • Defective wheels

Some parts may have been originally manufactured with defects, while others may have lost function over time to become dangerous. Regardless, it is the responsibility of the train company to ensure that their vehicles are safe to ride and will not cause harm to passengers.
