There are many different types of auto accidents that can occur, and not all are between two motor vehicles. Trains pose a threat to automobiles because of size and inability to stop quickly. Train accidents can also be caused by situations surrounding the train, such as faulty gates and stop lights, which can allow a car to cross the tracks when it shouldn't. Most accidents involving trains, however, are not the fault of the car's driver. If you feel that a train company didn't maintain its equipment properly, or that there was a malfunction that caused you (or a loved one) to be hit by a train, you may have enough cause to sue the train company. Many train accidents result in fatalities due to the force of a large train hitting a small car, so you may be entitled to filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Make sure to hire a train accident lawyer or a wrongful death lawyer who is well-versed in this area of personal injury law.
