SRDD Law believes in going above and beyond for our clients. In 2015, we represented one of the surviving victims of the February 3, 2015 Valhalla train crash. We said then that the design of the third-rail was a major reason the accident had been so catastrophic. Now, nearly two and a half years later, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has agreed, saying, “contributing to the severity of the accident was the third rail penetrating the passenger compartment of the lead passenger railcar and the post-accident fire.”
