Who Can I Sue After A Train Accident?

The issue of liability in a train accident case, as in most other injury cases, depends on the facts. Before we can identify the liable party or parties, we need to determine what caused the accident. For instance, if the conductor was intoxicated while on dutyhis employer may be liable. If another motorist drove onto the tracks and caused the wreck, then that driver may be held responsible for your injuries.  Other examples of liable parties may include:

  • The company that owns and operates the train 
  • The company that owns the tracks
  • The company that manufactured the train, a train part, or the track
  • The company that provides maintenance for the train or track
