Carlsbad Train Accident Kills Pedestrian | San Diego Fatal Injury Attorney

An unidentified man was struck and killed in a fatal train accident in Carlsbad that occurred on April 17‚ 2011 around 7:30 p.m. at Carlsbad Village Drive and State Street. According to the responding deputies‚ the man was trying to get to the other side of the railroad track and was struck by the train.

From the present facts‚ it is unclear how this train accident occurred. Did the train driver ignore a red signal? Was he distracted so that he did not notice the victim crossing the tracks? At the same time was it the victim’s failure to observe safety signals? Was he unable to calculate the distance between his car and approaching train? If negligent operation by the train conductor caused this train accident‚ then the train conductor and his employer might be legally required to compensate the victim’s family for the cost of funeral expenses‚ loss of love and companionship‚ and other related damages.

The deceased’s family would be well-advised to consult with an experienced San Diego personal injury lawyer who will advise them about their legal rights and options. An experienced lawyer is going to assure that the guilty party is brought to justice and victim’s family to obtain a timely compensation.

Our law office offers sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved the victim for their loss.
