Your ability to reconstruct or litigate a train accident can mean the difference between a successful or failed case. However, even experienced reconstructionists and attorneys are often unfamiliar with the myriad complexities of railroad operations and trains. Now, whether you are a novice or an experienced litigator, you can access a wealth of information in this ground-breaking text. In fact, much of the data and formulae are available here exclusively, saving you hours of tedious calculations and research.
Now in its fourth edition, this book is one of the most comprehensive texts in the field of railroad accidents. It contains a new section on remote control locomotive operations (RCL) and remote control operators (RCO), and helps you answer the question, is the "black box" and "appurtenance" causing strict liability under the Locomotive Inspection Act? The book also has updated information on grade crossing litigation, Americans with Disabilities Act, and federal pre-emption versus federal preclusion in FELA cases (an area in which many attorneys and courts err). With a subject as demanding and complex as train accidents, this book is an important tool to have on your side.
Topics Include: • remote control operations • event recorder analysis • FELA negligence claims • locomotive, railroad car, and RR track design • grade-crossing design, performance, and litigation • patron or employee slips, trips, and falls • audibility and visual issues at rail-highway grade crossings • derailments • demonstrative evidence in railroad litigation • forensic analysis of train collisions • locomotive cab safety and crashworthiness • breaking system design and performance • motor vehicle and human factors • speed, time, and distance calculations • pedestrian Accidents • Americans with Disabilities Act • third party liability issues • FELA compensation and benefits
