Train Slams Into Terminal, Injures over 100 Riders
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A Long Island Rail Road
train slammed into a terminal in Brooklyn injuring over a hundred people. The
train was packed with 650 people on the morning commute when it plowed
into a metal bumper that’s designed to keep it on the track. The
riders weren’t sure what had happened, but the glass was shattered,
people were bleeding, and smoke was everywhere. Police believe the accident
to be human error but are investigating other possible situations. The
train was going between 10-15 mph when it crashed. Authorities said the
injuries were mostly minor with one personal receiving a broken leg.
Accidents injure thousands each year and can be very scary for those involved.
Just like this accident the passengers and maybe even the driver had no
idea that they were going to slam into a terminal. Fortunately, no one
was seriously injured other than a broken leg, but it could have been
a lot worse. Injuries sustained in accidents can cost the victim thousands
of dollars in medical bills, therapy, and even home modifications if the
injuries are severe. How will you or your loved one pay for these bills?
If you suffer an injury during an accident at no fault of your own, you
might be liable for compensation.
