Common Injuries in Train Accidents

According to the Department of Transportation, over 2,500 train accidents occur each year nationwide, with many of those affecting Long Island and New York residents. The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is tasked with setting and enforcing rail safety regulations. However, despite safety standards, train operators and their parent companies can disregard these guidelines or otherwise fail to exercise proper care to keep passengers or bystanders safe. When a derailment occurs, a train collides with another vehicle or train, or a train strikes a pedestrian, serious injuries can result. Common injuries in train accidents include:

  • Brain injuries, which include mild concussions, open head wounds, and traumatic brain injuries. The more severe types of brain injuries may require a lifetime of additional care, changes to a victim’s work, and other permanent impairments affecting day-to-day life.
  • Fractured or crushed bones
  • Amputations
  • Spinal cord injuries, such as nerve damage and paralysis, affecting either one area or entire portions of a victim’s body and leading to paraplegia or quadriplegia. Many spinal cord injuries involve multiple surgeries, as well as extensive rehabilitation.
  • Severe burns, scarring, or disfigurement
  • Significant lacerations or abrasions
  • Internal injuries
