ATA has performed railroad accident reconstruction and has been closely involved with the railroad industry for nearly 40 years. We have not only concerned ourselves with railroad accident investigation and railroad accident analysis, but have also been involved in the study of railroad safety issues, and how improvements can be made to this critical area of public interest.
ATA has extensive background in rail-grade crossing accident investigation and in issues concerning Section 130 of the Highway Safety Act. We have also developed a strong relationship with the "Operation Lifesaver" program to assist in accident prevention efforts.
Railroad accident investigation scenarios involving issues of line-of-sight, conspicuity, quiet zones, signage and barriers are all areas in which ATA has expertise to support clients' accident reconstruction needs.
Contact ATA's railroad accident reconstruction experts if you need assistance in any of the following areas:
As with other areas of our work, ATA employees and associates maintain a working role on industry related committees such as the Transportation Research Board Highway Rail Grade Crossing Committee.
