Cedar Rapids Improperly Marked Crossing Lawyer
Collisions between trains and smaller motor vehicles almost never end without serious injury or death. By the time a train conductor is aware of the presence of another vehicle on or near the train tracks, it is likely too late for the driver to be able to stop before a collision occurs.
Because of this, it is critical that the companies that build and design railroad lines do everything possible to alert smaller vehicles to a railroad crossing and the possibility of an oncoming train so that accidents can be prevented. Without these warnings, many automobile drivers will find themselves unaware of a dangerous railroad intersection and could be the unsuspecting victim of a train collision.
Contact a Cedar Rapids improperly marked crossings lawyer at Leehey Olson Law, P.C., if you have been involved in a train accident that was caused by an improperly marked railroad crossing.
