Stamford, Bridgeport and Danbury Connecticut Train Accident Attorneys

Train accidents are uncommon, but they can be catastrophic. Train accidents pose a threat to passengers and people in the surrounding areas. The last major train accident in Connecticut occurred in May 2013 when two Metro-North trains collided after a derailment near Fairfield, Connecticut. More than 65 people were injured.

Railroad companies have an obligation to ensure their equipment is safe and their planned routes are free from danger. Failure to comply with safety standards can result in devastating accidents.

Common Causes of Train Accidents in Connecticut

  • Derailment

  • Collisions
  • Fire and Explosion
  • Equipment Malfunction
