Detroit Improperly Marked Train Crossing Lawyers
Train crossings are potentially hazardous intersections where vehicle traffic and train traffic may collide when proper security measures are not taken. Small passenger vehicles are no match for large, fast-moving trains, and an accident could result in life-threatening or life-ending injuries. Train crossings are supposed to be marked with clear signs to warn vehicle traffic of possible danger, but sometimes these signs are missing or are difficult to read, putting drivers and passengers at serious risk of harm.
If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a train accident because a train crossing was improperly marked, contact the Detroit improperly marked train crossing lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C. today at (866) 644-6587 for more information about your legal options.
Dangers of Improperly Marked Railroad Crossings
Sadly, some train crossings lack warning signs that alert drivers of the upcoming crossing. Without proper signage, a driver may not even notice a train crossing until it is too late. Drivers look for cues, such as flashing lights, yellow railroad signs, and crossing gates to alert them of a crossing and an oncoming train. Similarly, train conductors trust that crossings are well marked and that drivers will be alerted of the train’s presence in time. Because trains move with a great amount of momentum, they typically cannot be stopped in time to avoid a vehicle at a crossing.
