Q

What Should I Do if Im Hurt While Riding on the Train?

A
If you hurt because a train stops short, a train door malfunctions, a train crashes or in any other kind of railroad accident, then it is important to take the following steps to protect your potential physical and legal recoveries.

First, report the incident to the appropriate railroad authorities. A conductor should be able to tell you whom to see for help and to report that the accident occurred.

Next, seek appropriate medical care for your train accident injuries. It is important to seek medical care even if you aren’t in significant pain since some serious injuries do not result in immediate acute pain.
