How Often Do Trains Derail
If you regularly watch the news, it may feel as if you hear many stories about train derailments. You’re not mistaken. Trails derail quite often. While very few derailments result in someone losing their life, many catastrophic events leave individuals suffering from debilitating, permanent injuries.

One of the biggest fears that most of us have in taking public or mass transit trains is being in a situation where we’re not in control. We can’t see potential hazards that lie ahead to know when it’s not safe to proceed, nor do we know details about who’s guiding the vehicle we’re riding in. We put our faith in others to hire the right people and trust that those individuals will exercise good judgment; however, things can happen that jeopardize our lives.
