Train Accident Injuries
Train accidents can be minor or catastrophic, with only a few bumps and bruises or dozens of fatalities. It’s always best to see a doctor immediately after you’re in an accident, whether you’re presenting symptoms or not. Sometimes problems can take several days to show up, and you want to have all your medical records ready in case they do.Commuter trains like Amtrak can reach up to 90 mph, while freight trains up to a similar 80 mph. Regardless of whether you’re a rider, a pedestrian, or in another vehicle, that’s a lot of tonnage at an alarming speed, and injuries can be devastating.
Some injuries from train accidents may include (but aren’t limited to):
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Fractured bones
- Torn tendons
- Catastrophic injury
