Milwaukee Railroad Accidents Attorney – Railroad Employee Incidents and Injuries In 2013

You need to turn to an experienced Milwaukee railroad accidents attorney if you are a railroad employee who has suffered an injury at work.  Although accidents have decreased, there are still accidents and deaths every year.

According to the Federal Railroad Administration Office of Safety Analysis, in 2012 five railroad employees were killed and 58 were injured through October. An aggressive Milwaukee railroad accidents attorney can help any injured worker fight for the compensation he or she deserve.

The federal data shows deaths and injuries increased in 2013 compared to 2012. It is important to note the 2013 data was only complete through October. In 2012 there were a total of four deaths, while through October 2013 there were five.

In 2012 there were 45 recorded injuries, while in 2013 through October, there had been 58 injuries recorded, or an increase of 29 percent.

The total number of train accidents, however decreased. In 2011, there were 27 accidents and in 2012 there were 23, but through October 2013, there had been less than half that number, 11.
