Chemical Spills, Fuel Spills and Fires

chemical spill

In 2012, the Federal Railway Administration recorded 1,283 train derailments and 154 train collisions nationwide. In 25 of those incidences, a hazardous material was released requiring a total of 2,116 people to be evacuated. Sometimes these accidents only cause property damage. Other times, these types of train accidents are deadly.

In 2012, there were 19 derailments in Tennessee. One of those derailments resulted in the release of hazardous material. For 2013, there have already been 20 derailments, and fortunately none of those has resulted in the release of hazardous material. But even if hazardous material is not released, these types of train accidents can often involve fuel spills and fires and cause millions of dollars of property damage and result in incalculable losses in the form of catastrophic injuries and deaths.
