Never would anyone expect to die by train, but it does happen. Distracted pedestrians walking with earphones plugged in and hoodies up are often the victims. Raging teens trying to impress peers or a pretty girl have also been victims.
While the above examples include individuals that died by their own reckless choices, there are individuals who have died due to the negligent actions of others.
One example includes a CNN report of the Metrolink train crash on 11 September 2008 in San Fernando Valley California. “The National Transportation Safety Board confirmed that the engineer, who died in the accident, had been text messaging while working.” 25 people died in the accident and at least 130 people were injured. Texting was banned for all California train engineers after this accident.
This example shows that many people can suffer because of the actions of one person. A personal injury attorney in Utah, Texas, or near you, can secure just compensation for the lost lives of loved ones. File a wrongful death claim with an attorney today.
