Compensation After a Train Accident
When a train derails or collides with another engine, passengers aboard
the train can do very little to protect themselves from harm. Without
any safety restraints and often no warning about the imminent crash, passengers
serious injuries, or even
death. The outcome is almost-always catastrophic and the damage is widespread.
Recuperation can take months or years, and the medical bills will pile
up all the while.
You should be able to receive compensation that helps pay for:
- Initial emergency medical bills
- Ongoing hospital costs and rehabilitation
- Lost wages and reduced income
- Emotional trauma from the violence of the crash
Your Lawsuit Compared to a Class Action
Most personal injury lawsuits involve one plaintiff going up against one
defendant or defendant group, such as an entire company. If your injuries
after a train accident are unique, or if not many passengers were actually
injured, you may only need to use an individual civil lawsuit to collect
compensation. For most transportation accidents, however, class actions
are required. In a class action, one personal injury attorney will file
a single lawsuit on behalf of multiple people who were all hurt by the
same event, such as a train accident. When the case concludes, if successful,
the winnings will be distributed evenly among all plaintiffs.
