Cincinnati Improperly Maintained Tracks Attorney

When people travel by train or drive near a train, they typically trust that the locomotive as well as its tracks are in safe condition. However, when governments or railroad track owners neglect to properly maintain the railroad tracks, the risk of a serious train accident increases by a large margin. Not only are the train’s passengers in danger if tracks are poorly maintained, but drivers near the tracks are also at risk for serious personal injury.

If you or someone you love has been injured because of improperly maintained railroad tracks, this municipality or railroad track owner negligence should not go unpunished. To discuss your situation, contact the experienced Cincinnati improperly maintained railroad tracks attorneys at Stepleton Dugan, LLC, today at 513-321-7733. We are committed to helping our injured clients obtain financial compensation from the parties at fault for their accidents.

Common Railroad Track Defects

Train tracks demand a close and careful maintenance for trains to operate properly. Trains are powerful machines, and even slight defects with railroad tracks can cause devastating train collisions or derailment. Thus, tracks require frequent, careful maintenance. Improper railroad track maintenance can lead to the following problems:

  • Weak railings
  • Incorrect track switches
  • Rusted equipment
  • Debris on the tracks
  • Weak railroad ties

Train tracks should be checked regularly to identify and correct any defects before they lead to accidents. If maintenance crews fail in this duty to you, you could take legal action.
