Lac-Mégantic Train Wreck Attorney
Were You Injured in the Lac-Mégantic Train Wreck?
In Lac-Mégantic within the Canadian province of Quebec, a train
filled with shale oil derailed and incinerated more than 50 people. Many
families of the victims of the Lac-Mégantic disaster have contacted
our Houston injury attorney for help with suing any one of a multitude
of corporate defendants in United States Courts. One of the companies
being sued as a result of the Lac-Mégantic disaster is Rail World,
Inc., an Illinois corporation that owned and directed the Montreal, Maine
and Atlantic Railway, which was the operator of the runaway train.
Lac-Mégantic Train Accident Claims
The Lac-Mégantic derailment is the
fourth deadliest railroad accident in Canadian history, with 42 confirmed deaths and more than 30 destroyed buildings.
The leader of the litigation team, Peter Flowers, commented:
"No responsible corporate citizen sacrifices the public's safety on
the altar of corporate profits, but Rail World, in one of history's worst
examples of corporate immorality, dictated that a single engineer operated
a 72-car train full of flammable liquid and leave it unattended when 'safety
regulations' forced the engineer to take a mandatory rest break... It
is my sincere hope that beyond maximizing the recovery for the immeasurable
loss suffered by these families, that these lawsuits will inspire corporate
boards to appropriately value human life and always prioritize safety
