Dance Instructor Killed by Train

Posted By Personal Injury Lawyer || 15-Jul-2010

Respected and loved dance teacher, Katie Lunn, 26, of Chicago, was killed when her vehicle was hit one evening last month by an Amtrak train at Stuenkel Road in south suburban University Park. Brown was driving a vehicle carrying her two daughters and one of their friends. The darkness and the layout of the crossing made it difficult to see, reports said.

The woman reportedly drove over the railroad tracks, but the crossing's signal lights weren't working and that the gate did not come down, reports say. In fact, a Cook County prosecutor said she herself barely dodged being hit earlier that day.

Hours before she was struck, work crews had reportedly been out at the crossing reportedly working on the signal. Lunn had been at the American Dance Awards contest at Governors State University.

In the event of a train injury, especially one where the warning lights were faulty, there's 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.
