Detroit Railroad Employer Negligence Lawyers
Train conductors and other crew members are responsible for safely operating a train from its point of departure to its destination. While it may seem relatively simple to guide a train along its track, conductors must be constantly vigilant to react to changes in schedule or track direction. When a conductor or other crew member fails to pay attention to changes in track conditions or operation instructions, he or she may cause the train to crash or derail.
A train crash or derailing can lead to severe injuries or even fatalities for crew members and passengers alike. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a train accident, contact the Detroit railroad employer negligence lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C. today at (866) 644-6587.
Types of Negligence
Railroad companies are responsible for training their employees to safely operate and maintain their trains. When a conductor, mechanic, or other crew member makes an error that causes an accident, the company may be held liable for any injuries and damages that result. Our Detroit train accident lawyers have experience litigating cases against railroad companies that include:
- Negligent Hiring
- Failure to Train / Inadequate training
When a company hires an irresponsible or unqualified employee and fails to properly prepare him or her for the demands of the job, the employer may be liable for any harm that the employee may cause while working. Because train accidents can be so devastating, a railroad company cannot afford to make a hiring or training mistake. They must ensure that their employees are always prepared to perform their required tasks without error.
