Light Rail Accidents

Phoenix has a new light rail train system operating among our city streets. Many of us are not used to driving with trains on the streets, and do not understand the rules of the road to co-exist with train operations. Also, train gates and signals fail or a train operator may be negligent, which can result in an accident. In many respects, these types of accidents are similar to an accident between two vehicles. However, the manner in which you make a claim, and how, is compressed, and more difficult. Injuries can be more severe as well as these trains travel quickly, are bigger then a car, and transfer a lot of energy when there is a collision.
