With the rapid expansion of urban population in the United States and the increased need for mass transit, train travel has become the primary means of transportation to and from work for millions of Americans.

Thousands of Train Accidents Happen Each Year

Train travel is no longer a romantic mode of travel for those looking for a leisurely ride.

Also, with the MetroLink expansion in California, the last decade has seen a boom in commuter train travel in this state. However, with the rise in train travel, there has been a corresponding rise in train accidents like in the case with R&B group Tower of Power and Amtrack.

U.S. Train Accident Statistics

  • There are about 3,000 train accidents every year.
  • About 1,000 people die from train accidents every year.
  • There is a chemical spill resulting from a train derailment about every two weeks.

Preventing Train Accidents

There are many possible causes of train collisions and derailments, including negligence on the part of the engineer, inadequate rail maintenance, and unsafe operators. There is a growing trend of trains colliding with motor vehicles, which causes great damage to the train, the other vehicles, and everyone involved.

Train Safety in San Diego

Safety issues are always a high priority for state and federal officials. Keeping the public safe is of the utmost importance to safety agencies across the country, unfortunately not all environmental aspects can be controlled. This includes unforeseen weather issues and the general public ignoring safety precautions. Many of the deaths and injuries caused by trains can also be directly correlated to driver failure and mechanical defects causing serious injury and death.

Passengers riding trains should always be aware of their surroundings. If you feel something isn't right, say something. Recently, a train crash killed over 100 people and the operator was found to be traveling in excess of the recommended speed limit as he rounded a corner.

The train crashed killed and seriously injuring many of its passengers. Trains have operators who fall into the trap of being distracted just as any one operating a vehicle can. Lives can be saved if you sense something isn't right.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“Great Lawfirm – My sister Kristen in Chicago made the recommendation. Everyone has been great. I really don't think anything could have been done better.”

“Recently, I had to find a personal injury attorney on a case that had special circumstances. I had a car accident that is almost due to expire and unfortunately, in the beginning, I decided no [sic] to get an attorney. And oh boy am I regretting it. I didn't have a lot of respect for lawyers before this. And because of that, I made the decision not to represent myself two years ago. Altho [sic] they were not able to help me, Mr. Bisnar was so helpful that he directed me in a manner that I didn't need an attorney at all. He was funny and charming. It was my fault for not going the standard route, but next time, I will definitely not hesitate to contact these attorneys for any of my legal needs. I was VERY impressed. I don't use those words lightly (especially about attorneys!) so this is no bull! neither was Mr. Bisnar of Bisnar and Chase.”

“I could not recommend Bisnar & Chase highly enough! Now, I must be forthcoming and tell you that I am writing this review on behalf of my wonderful mother. You see, she's a mom, and therefor [sic] by nature is completely unable to do even the most simple of tasks on the internet. Like writing a a Yelp review. But we all love our moms don't we? Yes. We all love our moms (except Charles Manson), and would do anything to make sure they are protected and well taken care of. Upon referral from my mother's coworker, we contacted Bisnar & Chase. They had done a great job in this previous case and were located extremely close to both UCI and home, which made stopping by their office very convenient for my Mom. My Mom had been in an auto accident, nothing crazy but not a mere fender bender, and suffered what we thought to be some minor whiplash. Months later this was definitely not the case. Her client experience with the associates at Bisnar & Chase was so impressive that she raved to me about every time she heard anything from them. How thorough they were. How they listened better than I did (or something to that effect). How she liked Shannon and Mr. Bisnar and felt that they really had her best interests at heart. I honestly couldn't get her to shut up about them. But as a daughter that last part was all that I needed to hear to know that I we had found the right people and I could sleep easy at night knowing my Mom was in good hands. The Bisnar & Chase team really went above and beyond my family's expectations. And for that I am extremely grateful. If you live in the Newport Beach/Irvine/Costa Mesa/General Orange County area I would highly recommend Bisnar & Chase to both friends, and family.”
