When Unsafe Rail Crossings Cause Accidents
Drivers rely on signs and signals to tell them about potential dangers on the road. When it comes to railroad crossings, a variety of warnings are commonly used. When these warnings are missing, damaged or neglected, it can lead to a serious railroad accident.

What Makes a Railroad Crossing Dangerous?
Railroad crossing dangers depend on the setting. In certain places, it is perfectly acceptable for a sign to be the only method of warning drivers and preventing railroad accidents. In other places, it makes more sense to have cross-bars that go down to prevent drivers from crossing the tracks when a train is approaching.
Of course, even if proper warnings are in place, they need to be properly maintained. If they are broken, they don’t do any good. If grass or trees have grown up to block them, they don’t do any good.
Our attorneys will take great care to investigate these issues. We will build a strong case designed to get results.
