Makes a Good Point About Keeping Proof that You Were on the Train at the Time of a Crash | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

As an experienced lawyer in subway/railroad cases, one of our firm’s attorneys had good advice for anybody who was unfortunate enough to be on the train as a passenger, commuter or rider during Monday’s train wreck disaster in the District of Columbia.  Keep your ticket, swipe card, fare card or SmarTrip receipts as proof that you were on the train.  Insurance claims representatives will demand to see some evidence that you really were there, if you were not one of the severally injured who were carted off by ambulance.  Save yourself some aggravation and don’t dispose of this important evidence, if you were hurt in Metro’s worst accident in its three decade long history.
