Baltimore Train Accident Lawyers: Amtrak Derailment Case SettledOctober 28, 2016
On May 12, 2015, a commuter train headed from Philadelphia to New York City derailed, injuring over 200 passengers and ending the lives of eight people. After a short trial, Amtrak, the victims and victims’ families approved the settlement. Amtrak will pay $265 million as a result of the deadly crash. Now that the Amtrak derailment case settled, sources agree that it’s a miracle anyone survived at all due to the horrific state of the derailed train cars.
When a catastrophic train accident occurs, inevitably the lives and well-being of drivers and passengers are at stake. Although these types of accidents happen rarely, when they do, the potential for disaster is exponentially greater than other transportation crashes because trains are so large and travel at such high speeds to accommodate the needs of their passengers.
