Fatal Train Accident in Colorado

A conductor of a train has been killed in a tragic train accident, this past Saturday in Colorado. The 28-year-old conductor mysteriously fell off the Royal Gorge Railroad train during a scenic route. Authorities report local investigators and medical crews are gathering more information at the scene of the fatal accident. Officials report there were almost 200 passengers aboard the train when the young man fell off. The train was shut down the days following the accident. The Royal Gorge train has been in operation for 17 years and has provided a scenic route through Canon City, which is about 45 miles from Colorado Springs. The train was just four miles away from the station when the young man fell off. The owners of the train and the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office will continue to investigate the fatal train accident.

Wrongful death claims occur when a person is killed due to another person's negligence. The beneficiary of the person killed in the accident may be entitled to bring a wrongful death claim to receive financial compensation. This amount can help families pay for medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, loss of income, and emotional suffering. It can be painful for the family of someone killed to move on after a tragic accident, due to both emotional and financial effects.
