Our Michigan train accident lawyers recently settled a claim on behalf of a 43-year-old Canadian woman against the train carrier for injuries she suffered in a train derailment incident in Niles, Michigan. The case settled for $13,750.00, and was reached after negotiations with the train company without the need to file a lawsuit.
Our client was traveling in a train with her husband, her son, and her son’s friend from Chicago to Dearborn. As they were traveling through Niles, Michigan, the rail switch was reversed causing the train to derail and enter into a rail yard.
As a result of the train accident, the woman suffered serious injuries including whiplash and back strain with related symptoms. The injuries required short term treatment that included some physical therapy sessions. She was off work for a little under one month.
Our experienced lawyers filed a lawsuit against the negligent train company on behalf of our client for her pain and suffering damages. Her economic loss was paid as part of benefits provided to her under Canadian law.
