Train wrecks and railroad injuries, like any other accident involving heavy machinery, is likely to cause serious injuries that may have to be dealt with for the rest of one’s life. If you or someone you care about has been injured in a train accident, there is usually little doubt as to whether a legitimate claim exists. It is likely that injured passengers would sue the owners, operators or manufacturers of the train itself. But what if after having fully analyzed the facts of your particular situation, it is found that the owners or operators of the train are not negligent? What other factors could be present which would hold someone else liable for your injuries?

Breached Duties of Other Parties
In some instances, it may be appropriate to commence a lawsuit against some other party for their negligence which caused the accident. For example, it may be appropriate to sue a city, township or county if they failed to maintain working signs and/or lights, or failed to provide these kinds of safety measures altogether. There may also be a legitimate claim against one of these parties, or the manufacturer, where it is found that the rails upon which the train was traveling was defective. Finally, another possibility is to always sue the driver of a motor vehicle, where he has driven negligently or recklessly, and has caused the collision with the train. It is important to note that in these situations, injured passengers on the train may collect no-fault insurance benefits.
