Detroit Train Defect Lawyers
Trains are responsible for transporting passengers and cargo within cities and across the country. Many people consider trains to be relatively safe, yet thousands of train accidents occur each year in the United States. If a train is defective, a routine ride could turn into a very serious situation, possibly resulting in an accident. Train crashes can be devastating because of the high speeds at which trains travel and the massive amount of weight that creates significant momentum. Even a minor defect could cause a severe and possibly fatal accident.

Types of Train Defects
Trains rely on stable parts and a uniform track to run safely and smoothly. When the train or track becomes defective, the train could derail and crash, hurting bystanders and anyone on board. Some possible types of train defects include:
- Defective tracks
- Defective wheels
- Brake failure
- Improperly secured train cars
- Poorly secured cargo
- Signaling failure
- Communications failure
Any defect with the train, its communication system, track signals, or the tracks themselves could create a hazardous condition that leads to a train collision or rollover.
Train Accident Liability
When a train defect leads to an accident, there are multiple parties who may be liable for failing to address the defect. Train companies, train crew members, maintenance workers, parts manufacturers, track inspectors, train mechanics, or others may be legally accountable for the accident that caused your injuries.
