Published May 21 2015 | personal injury

In law week’s post, we discussed some of the legal issues arising from the recent Amtrak tragedy. Although civil liability may be the last thing on the minds of the surviving train victims, it is important for the legal process to fulfill its role. When the shock subsides, those who were injured may have to think about how to pay for their medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and/or other damages.

What questions should Amtrak passengers ask after this crash?

It’s easy to understand why the Amtrak route between Philadelphia and New York is so heavily traveled. Motor vehicle traffic is subject to congestion and highway tolls, and drivers can get easily fatigued trying to stay alert amidst the alternating stress and/or boredom that can accompany traffic and congestion. Train passengers, in contrast, don’t have to worry about the duty of care owed to other motorists. They can sit back, relax or do other activities while traveling in comfort.

Unfortunately, accidents involving big vehicles, whether they are trucks or tractor-trailers, can cause large destruction and shut down traffic for hours.
