Transcript - Train Injuries
In the last ten years over 55,000 people have died or been injured by trains in the United States. Since 2012 there have been 22 train crashes in the United States, that's more than Japan, the United Kingdom, France, and Russia combined. Even with the increased enforcement of rules and regulations, train fatalities haven't been this high since 2006. Many of these accidents are caused by negligent conductors, defective train equipment, track and signal defects and violating established safety guidelines. Millions of people in the United States rely on trains to commute. As trains continue to be a main source of transportation, it's important that commuters feel safe while traveling. Our firm is focused on preventing train accidents like the deadly Santiago de Compostela in Spain that killed at least 80 people and injured over 150 when the high speed train derailed. Or, the most recent in the United States, which happened in Chicago, injuring over 40 people when two trains collided head-on. These incidents are examples of how important safety is when it comes to public transportation. Our goal at Moll Law Group is to increase awareness of safety issues, and establish minimum standards in train safety and design to prevent injuries and save lives.
