Midland Railroad Accident Attorneys
Billions Won by Train Accident Lawyers in Midland-Odessa
During the earliest days of America’s economy, it built a network of railroads across the nation. These trains created the economic opportunity that a country the size of the United States needed. As the industrial revolution transformed America into an economic powerhouse, the nation’s trains carried prosperity to nearly every corner. Today, the Midland-Odessa area is placed centrally in one of the most oil-rich regions in the U.S. Its network of trains transports materials to and from oilfields. Sadly, high train activity can mean a higher rate of train and railroad accidents.
Common train accidents include the following:
Train accidents are often serious. A train's size makes them almost automatically deadly in collisions with cars, pedestrians, or other trains—they devastate anything in their path. In a train derailment, damage spreads across a wide area and increases the risk of nearby injuries. In fact, the FRA reports that 80% of railroad crossings are not adequate to protect bystanders, and more than 7,000 pedestrians have been killed by trains since 1997.
