In Austin, railroad workers play an essential role in the viability of our local Travis County economy! They help deliver a lot of the consumer goods and products that we all rely upon to live our daily lives! From the transportation of cars, trucks, coal, oil, gas, chemicals, equipment, durable household goods, electronics, to food and produce, we all rely upon the railroad industry to meet our daily needs! 

Unfortunately, Austin railroad workers have one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. Operating trains and railways in Austin is not easy! Also, work in railroad yards is hazardous! As a result, every day, railroad workers face an enormous risk of serious injuries and death.

Suppose you are a railroad worker and sustained serious injuries due to a railroad accident, railroad/car accident, defective equipment, or train derailment.

Railroad worker accidents can result in many kinds of serious injuries. Common Austin railroad accidents include, but are not limited to:

Train derailments: Unfortunately, every month, there are train derailments that cause severe injuries and deaths to railroad workers. Railroad companies are responsible for safely maintaining their trains and rails to prevent derailments. 

18 wheeler / Truck/car on train accidents: Across Austin, there are train accidents every week involving a motor vehicle that fails to exercise reasonable care and enters into a railroad crossing area causing a train accident. These kinds of railroad crossing train accidents lead to severe railroad worker injuries and fatalities.

Heavy freight and object falls: Throughout every railroad yard and railroad loading operation, railroad workers are around heavy freight and objects. When safety is not adhered to, railroad workers suffer severe catastrophic injuries and death as a result of heavy objects falling on top of them. 

Fires/explosions and burns: Every year, Austin railroad workers are subject to engine fire(s), electrical malfunctions, explosions, hose ruptures, which cause severe burn injuries.

Railroad worker pedestrian accidents: Austin Rail Road workers are often victims of pedestrian accidents as they perform their work in the railroad industry. Pedestrian railroad workers often find themselves being hit by a negligent driver of a motor vehicle, causing severe and life-threatening injuries! 

Loading and unloading injuries: Austin railroad workers are often negligently instructed to assist in the loading up and or unloading of heavy equipment and supplies. When railroad workers pick up and or move heavy equipment and or a heavy object without ensuring that all appropriate safeguards are followed, severe back and bodily injuries can arise! These kinds of injuries can be crippling for a railroad worker to do their jobs in the future!

Railroad worker slip and falls: Railroad yards and rail loading facilities can be hazardous if they are not maintained safely. Unfortunately, railroad yards regularly have dangerous conditions and defects, and Austin railroad workers far too often sustain serious slip and fall injuries!

Railroad chemical exposure injuries: Toxic materials and chemicals are present in the railroad industry. Prolonged exposure to these materials and chemicals cause Austin railroad workers to suffer from leukemia, rare cancers, asbestosis, etc. You may be entitled to compensation for these medical injuries!
