Train Mechanical Defect and Malfunction Attorneys

Ever since their invention and integration into society, trains have been a major method of shipping and transportation in the United States. Thousands of people rely on railway systems such as the People Mover to get around big cities, and most major production companies rely on railways to move their products across the country. While trains are an incredibly useful and generally safe method of transportation, they do have the potential to be quite dangerous. Their mechanical complexity creates a multitude of opportunities for failures that may cause accidents, and their sheer size and weight make any accidents in which they are involved more hazardous.

At Detroit Personal Injury Attorneys, our attorneys are dedicated to serving your needs. We believe that negligent behavior that leads to system failures or accidents is unacceptable, and we want to help you recover. If you have been injured in an accident related to mechanical defects or malfunction in a train, we may be able to help.

Causes of Defects and Malfunctions

Trains rely on thousands of individual parts, both mechanical and electrical, working together perfectly in order to function. If even one piece of the intricate system fails, the entire train could cause massive damages. What’s even more frightening than this knowledge is the fact that errors can occur on a number of levels, such as:

  • Production
  • Operation
  • Repairs

If any individuals working on the train or the railroad tracks at any point fails to dutifully perform any of their responsibilities, the consequences can be dire.
