Train Accidents and Railroad Negligence

Railroad companies have a responsibility to hire workers who are fully qualified for the jobs they are given. However, most new hires will require additional training in the specific tasks associated with their new jobs. A railroad company may be responsible for a train accident if it is caused by their failure to:

  • Fully inform workers about train and railroad maintenance and repairs
  • Develop, teach, and enforce an adequate emergency response plan
  • Oversee workers to ensure they are learning and performing their jobs correctly
  • Ensure that all employees understand the relevant signals and commands they may encounter

When train companies are negligent in training and supervising their employees, the results can be catastrophic. Our Jacksonville railroad lack of training attorneys are committed to winning justice for victims of careless railroad companies.
