Hoboken Train Crash. What's Next Legally?

The investigation of the New Jersey Transit train accident on September 29, which killed one person and injured more than 100 others, is now underway. The question as to how the investigation will be performed can be answered by looking at the Federal Laws of the United States. Initially implemented in 1966, the Department of Transportation created the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) to regulate the safety of the railroad industry. While creating the FRA, the Department of Transportation set the Federal Regulations that the FRA would work under. Furthermore, in 2008, the Rail Safety Improvement Act was implemented, promulgating new safety regulations due to the increase in fatal rail accidents between 2002 through 2008. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), an independent Federal agency, works alongside the Federal Railroad Administration to investigate in to, and recommend changes to improve rail safety.
