Massachusetts Train Accident Wrongful Death Claims

Whether you travel for business or pleasure, it is likely that you will at some point ride on a train. Trains are forms of public transportation that are convenient and cost-effective alternatives for reaching your destination. As a paying passenger, you are owed a duty of care from the company which you have retained for your travel needs. Train accident related deaths occur far too often in the United States. If the death results from a common carrier’s negligence or intentional act, survivors of the deceased may potentially bring a wrongful death claim to recover monetary compensation for their losses. Several issues must be evaluated to determine whether a wrongful death claim exists.

The first thing that needs to be established is whether the negligent party qualifies as a common carrier. Common carriers include individuals, companies and public utilities that transport people and cargo in their ordinary course of business. If this classification can be made, the party is subject to heightened standards of care towards their passengers. This means that common carriers may be liable for a wrongful death even if they were only slightly negligent. Common carriers breach this duty of utmost care and protection when they fail to adequately provide for passenger safety through either intentional or negligent behavior.

A determination must also be made as to whether the individual is entitled to receive this heightened duty of care from the common carrier. Train carriers owe a heightened duty of care to passengers and employees. In cases where plaintiffs were not on the train at the time of the accident, but were pedestrians and drivers of other vehicles, general Massachusetts rules of negligence apply. This means that pedestrians are only owed a duty of reasonable care. The duty of reasonable care requires that common carriers conduct themselves in a way that a reasonable entity in their situation would. This means that the ability to recover in a wrongful death claim also depends on the status of the deceased at the time of the accident.

The final step in establishing a wrongful death claim for a Massachusetts train accident is proving that the common carrier acted either recklessly or negligently, and that the reckless or negligent behavior resulted in death. Negligence can arise in many ways through both company and employee actions. The death, however, cannot merely coincide with the actions of the common carrier; it must be directly attributed to the common carrier’s conduct. A causal connection must exist between the carrier’s action and the resulting death.
