Causes of Train Accidents
Train accidents can be caused by a variety of factors, such as:
Poorly engineered track components, railway obstructions, or environmental damage to train equipment can cause trains to run off their tracks.
Speeding, signal errors, or mistakes behind the controls may lead to accidents with motor vehicles or other trains.
Accidents can happen when railroad companies fail to maintain important safety equipment, such as train braking systems or railway crossing signals.
