A man was fatally struck and killed by a freight train near Las Pulgas Road on April 3, 2012, around 10:35 p.m. near mile post 218. According to San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, the victim was struck by a southbound BNSF freight train near Las Pulgas Road.
Paramedics pronounced the victim dead as a result of the fatal injuries the man sustained. If the train operator is determined to have been at-fault in this case, then he could be held financially responsible for the injuries and damages caused.
At this time, the victim’s family members should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Diego County train accident lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights.
The victim’s family members may file a wrongful death claim in California against the at-fault train operator to obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, as well as other related damages.
Our law office sends sincere condolences to the victim’s family members.
