College Student Killed By Train

Posted By Injury Attorney || 9-Jul-2010

A train accident on May 31 took the life of 22-year-old SBBC student Stanford Heath Allison Jr.

According to reports, Allison was struck and killed by an Amtrak passenger train as it made its way into the station.

Reportedly, he had walked around the dropped traffic control arms and onto the tracks on a busy intersection. Allison died at the scene. Allison is survived by his parents and his brother and sister

There have apparently been several people recently killed by trains in the same area.

Trains appear smaller as they come toward pedestrians while standing at road level - which is why there are so many pedestrian/train accidents. People wandering on the tracks often have much less time to move from the tracks than they think.

In the event of an injury, there is possible compensatory relief.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
