Tragic Train Accident Takes Life of Young Woman

Comments Off

Our hearts go out to the family of Britta Aker. At the young age of 27, her life was prematurely taken early yesterday morning as she walked over Union Pacific Railroad tracks in Newark, California. Unfortunately, it will be a tough task for her family to persuade a court to permit recovery for civil damages. This is so because California courts tend to hold that railroad tracks alone are a sufficient warning regarding the danger of being hit by a train. Therefore, the defendant railway tends to win these types of civil cases.
