The Train Collision
A train collision at a railroad crossing is the most common type of train accident. A train collision can occur with another train, a car or truck or with a pedestrian, and no matter the specific circumstances, the results are usually catastrophic.

That is why it is crucial that you speak with a knowledgeable train accident attorney.
