Personal Injury ($1,475,000.00)

A 36 year old passenger in an SUV was injured when the driver of his vehicle crossed railroad tracks from a road running parallel to the tracks, driving in front of a freight train. The train crossing signals were flashing, but the signal lights were not visible given the angle at which the SUV approached the crossing. The passenger sustained traumatic brain injuries. The railroad denied that it was liable, as the SUV driver had crossed in front of several other vehicles which were stopped. This result was obtained in collaboration with another personal injury law firm.
