When there is an accident involving a car and train, the injuries for those in the car are very serious. The magnitude and weight of a train coupled with the speed at which it travels make for an extremely dangerous situation. At times, these accidents occur because of defects, mistakes or serious safety hazards.

Dangerous Railroad Crossings
One of the places that car and train accidents tend to occur is at a railroad crossing. Many of the grade crossings have been eliminated through bridges or avenues to avoid pedestrian and motor vehicle danger. However, there are some dangerous crossings that still exist.
Usually when a train collides with a car, there is some type of malfunction that has occurred. Often these collisions involve defects in the gating or crossing mechanisms.
