Metro Link Trains Struck Two People on Tuesday Night
Metrolink trains struck two people Tuesday night at two different locations. One person was injured and the other tragically killed.
Are wrongful death and persona injury lawsuits appropriate?
The answer to this question depends largely on the outcome of the investigation to determine what exactly happened and the cause of the accidents. A wrongful death lawsuit is brought by the deceased party’s heirs to recover damages suffered as the result of the deceased party’s death. The lawsuit is filed against the party deemed to prospectively be at fault. A personal injury lawsuit is brought by the injured party to recover damages suffered as the result of being injured.
