Two Separate Northern California Train Accidents Cause Numerous Injuries

Sacramento Wrongful Death lawyer

Woodland, California news reports that two separate Northern California train accidents - one near Davis and another in Oakland - were responsible for causing significant delays and personal injuries. The Davis train accident happened around 4:50 p.m. when a Sacramento woman was driving westbound on Country Road 32A, west of CR-105A. Reports indicate that she was driving under the influence and drove her car off the road and onto the railroad tracks. She left the vehicle to call for assistance, and an Amtrak train hit the car while she was waiting. The force of the collision caused her car to catch fire, but fortunately none of the passengers on board were injured. The Sacramento woman was arrested on a suspicion of drunk driving.

Passengers involved in the Oakland train accident were not so lucky. Reports indicated that about 17 people received personal injuries as the result of that train collision. If you have sustained personal injuries as the result of a train accident or any other motor vehicle accident, it is critical to contact an experienced Sacramento personal injury lawyer to protect your rights and determine your next steps. Many times, it may be possible to recover compensation for your injuries.

The Oakland crash occurred when one Amtrak train ran into another train that was unloading passengers. The moving train was going about 15-20 miles per hour, and officials reported that it ran through a red light. The Oakland Fire Department Chief noted, "According to the Amtrak representative, the train traveling should never have continued past the red signal." However, a separate Amtrak spokesperson declined to comment on any of the factors that may have lead to the crash. The incident is still under investigation and may take between three to six months to complete.

Whenever any accident occurs and injuries are involved, it is important to speak with a knowledgeable California personal injury attorney immediately. A skilled accident lawyer can begin his or her own investigation into the causes of an incident and preserve your right to obtain damages. Many times, more than one factor may be to blame - including more than one person or entity - and you may be able to seek recovery from a variety of sources. The first step is to determine whether any party was negligence or reckless. Where that negligence or recklessness caused injuries, it may be possible to recover money for your harm. It is important to retain a personal injury lawyer to ensure your interests are protected.
