How Common Are Rail and Metro Accidents in Annapolis and in America?

by | Dec 18, 2019 | Lawyers

Statistics about plane crashes and automobile accidents are all over the news today, but what about those taking public transportation or using the rail systems? These topics aren’t often covered but the information is vital those who use metro and rail transportation on a daily basis.

For so many of us, public transportation and train travel is the most common and affordable method of travel. Rarely do the riders of public and other ground transportation methods hear terrifying tales of crashes on buses or trains.

That may be because train travel is almost as safe as traveling by airplane. That may not sound like much, but considering the fact that traveling by plane is far safer than traveling by automobile, that is good news, indeed.

Average Americans have a 1 in 114 chance of dying in a car crash, but for air travel it’s closer to 1 in 10,000. Extrapolating from there, it is reasonable to assume that if rail travel is almost as safe as air travel, the average metro and rail passenger in America is relatively safer by car.

But that doesn’t mean that accidents don’t happen. And you don’t have to be a passenger on the metro or train for you to be considered a victim in a metro/rail incident. Visit Metro Accidents In Annapolis page for more information regarding what is considered a metro/rail accident.
