Pedestrian accidents can take place on streets and highways but also near train tracks. If a train strikes an unsuspecting individual, the victim may sustain catastrophic injuries or even a fatality in the accident. If the pedestrian accident victim survives the incident, they may contend with debilitating injuries, mental trauma, and a loss of income, too.
