Tragedy struck again yesterday when another family was torn apart by another preventable train accident. This time in Batavia. Tragically, two young children were killed and their mother and sibling seriously injured. Reports on the accident give reason to believe that work was being performed upon the tracks, and/or near the tracks, and that this family was the victim of negligent confusion and/or misinformation. We suspect that the railroad failed to protect them. In the view of this law firm, train accidents due to the negligence of the railroad are far too common and have reached and stayed at an entirely unacceptable level. There has to come a time when our society begins to recognize that the value of a human life far exceeds that of the value of the coal carried by the railroad. The Beattie Law Firm has made it a goal to try and improve safety for all of us by reducing the risk that injury or death by catastrophic means will arise. Sadly, our institutions and systems are so infected by railroad money and influence, that it is difficult to obtain their representation in legislation. That is why victims of accidents like this must fight for their rights and those that will follow in their shoes.
Whenever you or loved one is involved in the tragedy that is, or may be, the fault of a major institution or corporation, such as a railroad, it is critical that you immediately contact an attorney, particularly if your loved one is incapacitated. The railroad begins their litigation strategy immediately and without hesitation. To protect yourself, you will need legal assistance. Lawyers, such as those at The Beattie Law Firm, are your answer for protection. We understand that you do not have the financial resources of the railroad, and indeed may not have much financially to begin with. Thus, we have structured our services in such a way that you will never have to pay The Beattie Law Firm if we are not successful in making a recovery on your behalf. Do not hesitate. Contact a lawyer immediately.
