Train Crew PTSD is Becoming an Epidemic

While crossing accidents, derailments and death on railways have always drawn attention, the train crews often go forgotten.  Post Traumatic Stress Disorder among engineers and conductors is becoming a problem.  Unfortunately, railroads are not adequately addressing the issues, even though they have known for decades of the occurrence of post critical incident psychological conditions occurring among its train crews.  After an accident, many crews are ordered to get back on the train and finish the trip, even though they are in a "shell shocked" state and carrying enough hazardous materials to cause the evacuation of a major city.  Our firm represents and helps these train crews and has a proven record of success in PTSD cases nationwide.
