New York (NY) Attorney Helping Victims of Grade Crossing Accidents

According to the National Safety Council, each year approximately 4,000 accidents occur between trains and other vehicles at railroad crossings. These 4,000 collisions result in about 400 fatalities each year.

Railroad crossings are extremely dangerous. Over 90% of all railroad-related deaths occur at railroad crossings. These accidents are the most avoidable when common sense is used and laws are obeyed.

When a motorist approaches a grade crossing and detects an oncoming train, they are required to stop and wait until the train has cleared the crossing. Cars are required to yield to oncoming trains at railroad/roadway crossings because trains have the right-of-way under the law.

Train operators are required to provide timely warnings to the public when their trains approach a crossing. Federal law requires all trains turn on their headlights and use their horns that meet a minimum loudness standard. State laws often specify that a horn must be sounded when approaching a crossing.
