Connecticut railroad accidents: Focusing on recovery

Many Connecticut railroad workers and their families have been devastated in the aftermath of serious train collisions. Railroad accidents often make national news headlines because they are so disastrous, often resulting in fatalities. Many of those who survive endure long, arduous recoveries.

Railroad accidents often caused by negligent vehicle drivers

If a Connecticut train is moving along the tracks and a negligent driver is nearby, it could possibly lead to disaster. Railroad accidents often occur when cars try to beat a train at a crossroads. In such situations, if employees of the railroad were to be injured, they would typically file claims to collect benefits under the Federal Employers Liability Act. This is the system that provides injury benefits to workers and also allows workers to sue their employers if they believe they are liable for their injuries.
