A train and a semi-truck collided on May 14, 2010 in Michigan, and investigators are trying to determine if it was caused by driver error or malfunctioning railroad signals. The violent crash resulted in four people being injured. The train conductor, conductor assistant and an engineer were on board the locomotive at the time of the crash and the 59-year old driver of the semi-truck was alone. All four of the victims reported bruises, bumps and back pain. As railroad accidents continue to increase involving derailment, crashes with other trains, pedestrians, equipment failure or crashes with other vehicles; all of these types of accidents can result in catastrophic injuries, deaths, and extremely large amounts of property damage.
Not only do these injuries have major consequences for the victims, but their families and loved ones who depend on their income may have to provide care. A FELA claim may assist family members in recovering lost wages, compensation for pain and suffering, future and past medical bills and the possibilities of permanent disability.
