Indianapolis Failure to Train / Inadequate Training Attorneys
For any job that involves potentially dangerous machines, vehicles, or mechanisms, it is absolutely critical that employers invest a reasonable amount of time into training their employees and making sure that they are capable of performing the job at hand safely and correctly.
This is especially important in the case of railroad workers. Both commercial and commuter trains are used every day in the United States, transporting cargo ranging from human passengers to extremely dangerous chemicals. As such, it is important that railroad workers are highly trained in order to prevent deadly railroad accidents from taking place.
The failure to train / inadequate training lawyers of Hankey Marks & Crider understand the damages that can result from an improperly operated train. We have experience dealing with a variety of railroad accident scenarios and are here to provide you with the counsel and representation you need if you have been injured in a train accident that was caused by an unqualified railroad worker.
Despite all the damage that unqualified railroad workers can cause, railroad companies continue to place inadequately trained employees in the workforce year after year. In the year 2007, there were 791 fatal train accidents, the many of which were caused by human errors.
The number of human-caused railroad accidents would likely decrease significantly if all railroad employees were not only trained properly at the beginning of their work, but if their training and skills were checked throughout their employment.
