Pottroff & Karlin has continued in the pursuit of their goal of making the world better through the legal system. However, the Kansas-based law firm has taken it a step further with the creation of a cool map of the United States Train Accident. The aim of the plan is to enhance the safety of the rail lines across the nation.
According to a report published by the National Transportation Safety Bureau, one person or vehicle is hit by a train nearly every two hours. Incidents such as derailment, train-train collisions, train-car collisions, and train-person collisions lead to almost 1,000 deaths in the United States. This is in addition to train and railroad accident statistics estimating that train derailment leads to a chemical spill nearly every two weeks. Unfortunately, the occurrence and frequency of train accidents have been on a steady rise for more than two decades. This has led to more devastation to individuals and even the government due to the loss of resources. Pottroff & Karlin is consequently looking to offer more details into the incidence of rail accidents and possibly reducing the frequency of the unfortunate phenomenon by creating the fantastic Train Accident map.
Over the years, Pottroff & Karlin has focused on railroad safety, helping victims of rail accidents as well as their loved ones to get the justice they deserve. The train accident map is only a reiteration of this goal, providing users with important information on such incidents. The map allows all categories of users to view the number and the type of incidents and the location of such events.
The map will also be an easy-to-use source of relevant information while also reinforcing the vital message that more needs to be done to improve the safety of railroads across the U.S.
