Railroad crossing accidents in Arizona

Railroad crossings are inherently dangerous locations for cars and other vehicles, even when safety requirements are followed. While railroad crews must warn of approaching trains by sounding their whistles, this warning often cannot be heard inside vehicles with windows up or music playing. Since sight distances are often limited at crossing locations, the city or county must provide adequate warnings of approaching trains through use of flashing lights, automatic gates or both. The type of protection required depends on many factors, including the sight distances available, the speed of the train, the speed limit of nearby highways and any history of prior accidents at the location.

Our Phoenix railroad accident attorneys assist victims of railroad crossing accidents by seeking compensation from responsible railroad companies, as well as the cities or counties that share responsibility for making crossings safe.
