What happens when the driver dies in the collision?

Posted on May 19, 2013

In this pickup truck versus train accident Gary Eilers of Waterloo was hospitalized and Brian Leckness a passenger died.

“According to the State Patrol, Eilers failed to yield at the crossing about 8 a.m. as he traveled north across the tracks and the vehicle was pushed one-quarter mile west down the tracks by the Canadian Pacific train.

The crossing is posted with a yield sign.”

These are cases in which we as the personal injury lawyer can represent the passenger against the driver’s estate or insurance company. We arrange to have an estate opened with us representing the not-at-fault passenger. So first you hire the personal injury lawyer. And second, we will arrange to have the driver’s estate opened.
