Legal Help for Commuter Train Derailment Victims

by Staff Blogger | March 10th, 2016

It’s the end of a long day at work. You step onto the train, anxious to get home to your family. You’ve taken this trip hundreds of times without incident, but all of that is about to change.

On March 7, a commuter train derailed in Northern California, injuring nine people. The impact and resulting wreckage was so extreme that an Alameda County Sheriff Department spokesperson said it was “an absolute miracle that no one was killed.” Although we are thankful no one was killed, that fact is little comfort to those who were seriously injured in the incident. For them, the hardest part is just beginning, leaving them with a lot of unknown questions.

Your medical expenses won’t end with your hospital stay; who’s going to pay for ongoing treatment? You’re not going to be able to work while you recover; who’s going to compensate you for lost wages? You’ve been through a traumatic, life-changing event; who should be held responsible for your pain and suffering?
