What is negligence?

Negligence is defined as failure to use reasonable care, which results in damage or injury to another person. Regarding train accidents, it is the responsibility of the locomotive company to safely operate trains as far as other vehicles, pedestrians and passengers are considered. In other words, being what is called a common carrier, the train is responsible for ensuring safe transport all around.

Because Illinois is an at-fault tort state, injured parties can opt to collect compensation for their injuries sustained by proving that the injuries came about due to the train operator’s negligence. What this means is that the defendant (train operator) clearly had a legal duty to the injured plaintiff, the defendant breached this duty and this breach is the direct cause of the plaintiff’s injuries. This is because train companies are legally held responsible when it comes to complying with state and federal safety laws. Train operators can breach this duty in instances where they fail to stop at a stop sign or red light, speed over train tracks or are driving drunk or while on drugs. Attorney Dan Newlin and his team of train accident attorneys have achieved success in thousands of cases, recovering over 150 million for injury and accident victims.

In addition to these factors, the plaintiff needs to demonstrate that it was the defendant’s breach of duty that caused his or her injuries. So for instance, if you are a victim who had a pre-existing health condition, it may be difficult to prove your current injuries are due to the train operator’s negligence. The train accident attorneys at the law offices of Attorney Dan Newlin & Partners can help you decide whether you have in fact been a victim of train negligence and explain your potential options.
