Deadly Train-Pedestrian Crashes in New Mexico

Las Cruces, NM - Pedestrian Fatally Hit by Train at Lohman & Amador AveA locomotive moving at full speed is like an unstoppable force. Unfortunately, many innocent victims are involved in life-changing accidents with trains yearly in the United States. The majority of these accidents involve people traveling on foot. Statistics show that a total of 7,200 pedestrians have been killed on American railways since 1997. More than 6,400 were injured. It has been found that an estimated 500 people are killed annually in pedestrian-train crashes across the nation. 

Most families are too caught up in their grief and mourning of a loved one even to consider seeking legal action. This is completely understandable, and you need your time to deal with a fatal accident. However, it is also in your best interest to start your case as soon as possible. You are at risk of losing key evidence that can help back up your case if you wait too long, and this can mean that you are unable to hold the person responsible for your loved one’s death accountable for their actions. 

No one ever wants to pursue a wrongful death claim, but sometimes it is necessary. The deceased may have been the primary provider of your home, and you now find yourself unable to make ends meet in their absence. The fatal accident could have resulted in mounting medical bills and other expenses you are not ready for. 

The loss of a loved one is extremely devastating. We never know when we will meet a family member for the last time, and this loss is even more catastrophic when caused by the reckless actions of a reckless driver.
