Liability for Railroad Crossing Deaths

When someone is struck and killed by a train at a railroad crossing there are many factors that police must investigate to determine liability. First, police will check to see if there was a stop sign installed in the vicinity of the train tracks? Also, if was there an operable crossing arm and clear pavement markings indicating a railroad crossing was ahead. Investigators must also check to see how fast the train was traveling, whether it was a safe speed for this location and if a warning horn was sounded by the engineer.
