Birmingham Train Derailment Lawyer

Although train derailments are not as common as car accidents, they can cause exponentially more damage when they do occur. Derailments happen for a number of unfortunate reasons. A common cause of train derailment is a rail or track defect. If the operating company or government does not adequately maintain the train tracks or if the track manufacturers fail to provide a safe product, it can lead to catastrophic train derailment accidents.
