Oklahoma Train Accidents
Train accidents can involve collisions between two trains or a train and another vehicle, derailments, or other hazards that cause injury. The massive size of railway equipment can result in extreme damage, and the possibility of spilling hazardous freight increases the potential for widespread harm.

Each year there are around 500 people killed at rail crossings, and more than 1,800 injured in such accidents.
Collisions between vehicles and trains at railroad grade crossings are usually catastrophic or deadly. There are many dangerous railroad crossings throughout the state of Oklahoma. Some are in urban areas, but many are in rural areas with poor sight lines. Often times, a number of factors can contribute to this kind of accident, including the maintenance of the crossing itself or the warning equipment on the train, visibility and weather conditions, or outright carelessness. The railroads will attempt to escape liability by relying on Federal Statutes that they will argue give them immunity from paying damages in certain accident cases. These are complicated issues of law, which we at Garrett Law Office are equipped to deal with in handling such cases.
