Doe Families v. Roe Railroad
Families of Two Killed Track Maintenance Workers Settle with Railroad
A team of track maintenance workers had just completed work on track in
Orange County. As they headed back to their truck, two of the workers
were walking on the track. The crew's watchman was walking with the
men and did not see the train come around the corner. The train could
not stop and the men were killed.
The railroad claimed that the accident was entirely the men's fault
for violating safety rules. Biren Law Group was able to establish, through
intensive questioning of the railroad's management, that the primary

On the eve of trial, the railroad settled for a substantial confidential
amount, rather than risk an even higher potential verdict. Our firm was
honored to be able to help these families obtain justice and compensation
on behalf of their lost loved ones.
