Wisconsin Conductor Error Attorney
When you take the train you may not see the conductor, or the driver. However, train conductors have many important responsibilities for preparing and driving the locomotive. While it may seem like many things are automatic or electronically driven, most trains still rely heavily upon the direction of a conductor.
By riding a train, you are putting your welfare in the hands of the conductor. Sadly, train conductors may not always live up to this responsibility. If you have been hurt by a careless train conductor, you do not have to fight this alone. At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, our experienced Wisconsin conductor error lawyers can help.

Common Conductor Mistakes
Although conductors remain mostly out of sight, they perform several important tasks to prepare and drive the trains. If they fail in this duty to you, it can result in catastrophic injuries to you as well as your fellow passengers. Common conductor errors include:
- Failure to inspect the train’s operating mechanisms before starting
- Failure to inform the crew of their duties and routes
- Failure to follow safe routes
- Failure to alert track controllers so they can perform track switches
- Operating the train while intoxicated
- Operating the train while under the influence of drugs
Some trains can travel over 200 miles per hour and carry hundreds of passengers. Due to the size and speed of these trains, conductors must remain completely focused on their tasks. Any distractions or impediments to this can put the passengers in terrible danger.
Trains are excellent for fast, long-distance travel, especially into cities where parking is difficult to find. Train accidents, however, can be devastating.
