$240K Train Accident Settlement for Retiree

and amtrak train similar to the one in clients train accident

An AmTrak train accident occurred when the train struck construction equipment outside of Philadelphia and derailed. Our client was in the bathroom at the time; her body was thrown into the air and struck all portions of the compartment. She sustained injuries to her lower back, including a spinal compression fracture, hip fracture, and constipation.

This women was 70 and had planned to enjoy several retirement activities. Instead, she saw a spine specialist and had physical therapy. She did not obtain surgery (as it was not specifically recommended), but she felt pain when bending over or getting out of a chair.

Train accidents — while less common than car accidents — often cause serious injuries and fatalities. Even a relatively minor accident can cause significant pain and suffering.

Our team was able to negotiate a train accident settlement of $240,000 from AmTrak’s insurance company. It was welcome relief for someone living on a fixed income who suddenly had an abundance of medical bills.
