64-Year-Old Man Killed in Train Accident
This is an unusual case because, more often than not, a car, van, or pickup truck is involved in a train crash that leads to a rail injury or death. In this case, the victim was on foot and may have been unaware of the oncoming train. It will be interesting to see what the police uncover in their investigation concerning the train accident. For example, did the train fail to sound its horn? If the police to turn up evidence that this was a wrongful death, we hope that the family seeks justice against the railroad company.
We have experience in dealing with railroad companies concerning wrongful death and injuries. In a recent case we were able to see that a man's family was awarded $8.6 million dollars for being exposed to radiation, asbestos, and diesel fumes.
