How Safe Are NYC Railroad Crossings?

Railroad crossing

Train accidents are prevalent among recent headlines. Many of these accidents occur at railroad crossings where collisions with objects or vehicles on the track result in many injuries and unfortunate deaths. Accidents can often be attributed to faulty equipment or excessive speeds. Regardless, train operators, conductors, and those responsible for maintaining railroad equipment have a duty to ensure a safe trip and properly functioning railroad crossings. When they fail in their duties, they are negligent, and victims have a right to compensation.

NYC Railroad Crossing Accident Attorneys have been busy recently due to the increase in train accidents. The increased number of accidents has prompted the MTA to launch a campaign aimed at raising awareness among drivers and pedestrians, encouraging them not to rush through closing crossing gates. Overall, most railroad crossings in New York are safe, provided the equipment is working properly.
