Sacramento Light Rail Accidents

Eliot Reiner, APLC Defends Those Injured in Sacramento

Transit riders can be injured by a variety of causes inside the train: sudden starts and stops, doors closing on them, and speedups and sudden slowdowns that cause people to lose balance and fall. Further, innocent bystanders can be struck by trains. Eliot Reiner, APLC can help you navigate this difficult time!

Outside the train, other kinds of incidents happen, including vehicles and pedestrians struck at crossings. Light rail trains do not derail often, or collide with other trains, but when they do, there are often fatalities and catastrophic injuries.

Expecting 'The Utmost Care And Diligence'

California law applies a higher requirement of standard to common carriers like passenger trains than it does to people in cars. The law says they must "use the utmost care and diligence for safe carriage, must provide everything necessary for that purpose, and must exercise to that end a reasonable degree of skill."

  • Inattentive engineers or conductors
  • Failure to observe signals

  • Safety noncompliance
  • Improperly parked train cars
