Survivors of Train Crash in Court

Survivors of Train Crash in Court

Two and a half years ago when a passenger train slammed head-on into a freight train there were over 100 people seriously injured. Two of those people sat before a judge in a courtroom and described a horrific scene and their suffering they sustained during the accident.

Their was a $200 million settlement that the judge is determining how to divide up. One man who was most severely injured with damage to his spine and a broken neck wants the judge to determine how to divide the settlement most appropriately. The entire pool of money will likely be divided among the families of 25 who were killed during the accident and 100 other who were injured, advised a injury attorney.

The judge estimated that it will take two months to hear from all of the victims and divide the money most appropriately as there is a federally mandated cap on the fund available. It is not known if a car accident lawyer San Diego will be involved.
