Settlement Reached After A Train Collision

Published: Sep 9, 2016 in Wrongful Death

It is a harsh reality that accidents can happen anywhere, even in areas that are off the beaten path. For example, a man was recently driving on an idyllic country road when he came upon a railroad crossing. As he attempted to cross, the driver did not have sufficient warning of the train’s approach and it collided with his car, resulting in his death. Obviously devastated, the man’s family retained the services of the skilled Southern Illinois attorneys with The Cates Law Firm, LLC, who immediately commenced a thorough investigation of the accident. This investigation prompted the wrongful death lawyers with The Cates Law Firm to file a lawsuit on behalf of the deceased man’s family. After extensive litigation, a substantial monetary settlement was reached, alleviating the financial burden caused by this accident.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
