BROOKLYN: Train Traveling Twice Legal Speed Before Crashing at the Atlantic Terminal Station

Jan 9, 2017 | Train Accidents

100 PEOPLE LEFT INJURED

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK (January 7, 2016) – Authorities are investigation what caused a Long Island train crash, but there are already some suggestions that sleep apnea may have played a role.

Sleep apnea can be a potentially very serious disease in which a person’s breathing starts and stops unexpectedly. This is the third time in 3 years that sleep apnea appears to have played a role in a train crash.

In the last train crash a few months ago the engineers sleep apnea was diagnosed. The same thing appears to be true here. This event raises important safety concerns.

What steps are taken in order to help ensure that engineers are able to properly do their jobs.

Our staff at the RMFW Law Firm were deeply concerned when we heard about the train crash in Brooklyn. The engineer exhibited signs of sleep apnea and should have received treatment before he was allowed to do his job.
