Illinois Youth Killed by Train

Posted By Injury Lawyer || 11-Jul-2010

A 13-year-old central Illinois boy was struck and killed by a Canadian National Railway train last month.

Kyle Tyler Vandeveer, of Charleston, was struck by the train as he was headed to his grandfather's house, reports say. Jefferson County Sheriff officials say the boy's grandfather lives in Bluford, and the teen was known to enjoy walking on the train tracks.

His body was found under a railroad trestle in Bluford, about 85 miles southwest of Charleston, and officials say they don't suspect foul play in the boy's death. The Illinois State Police, Jefferson County sheriff and coroner and the railroad company are investigating.

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.
