Cincinnati Railroad Failure to Train Attorneys

In addition to hiring sufficiently qualified people, it is essential for railroad companies to provide employees with sufficient training to ensure that they are capable of carry out their responsibilities. Trains are far more complex machines than the average automobile; accordingly, thorough training is required to educate engineers on the specifics of how to handle a train, under both normal and emergency circumstances.

If you have been hurt in an accident that could have been prevented were a railroad employee given adequate training, you may be able to pursue financial compensation.

The Consequences of Inadequate Training

Lack of training translates into an inability to deal with potentially threatening real-life situations. Some problems that might arise if a train is under the control of an inadequately trained operator, or if other personnel are not properly equipped for the demands of their job, include:

  • Derailment of cars
  • Abrupt train movements
  • Excessive speed
  • Collisions with other trains
  • Inaccurate estimation of needed braking distance
  • Unfamiliarity with track mechanisms

Any accident involving a train has the potential to cause significant injury and extensive property damage. When a negligent railroad company is to blame, it is essential that they are held accountable for these failures.
