In Oklahoma, trains often carry thousands of tons of cargo and travel at high rates of speed. Consequently the result of any train collision, no matter how minor, can be catastrophic injuries and even death. The types of railway accidents vary as much as the causes.

Oklahoma Train & Railroad Crossing Accident Lawyers

Common types of Oklahoma railroad accidents are:

  • Train/Train collisions
  • Truck/Train collisions
  • Train /Car collisions
  • Derailments
  • Pedestrian/Train Accidents
  • Railroad Crossing Accidents

The railroad company and its employees must take care to maintain the track, and see that there is a clear line of sight at railroad crossings for motor vehicles, pedestrians and the train engineer. Since it takes a much greater distance for a train to come to a stop than a car or truck it is vitally important that all drivers have a clear line of sight to each other.

Since injuries of all kinds and even death can often occur the victims of these train collisions and their families are faced with long periods of medical treatment, staggering medical bills, lost wages , pain and emotional distress. Families of those victims who have unfortunately lost their lives can be faced with medical and burial expenses and the loss of the families financial support.
