Trevor Courtney's Case Results

Massive Verdict Won Against Union Pacific

Attorney Kyle Findley and our team represented a grievously injured woman who was struck by train operators working for Union Pacific.

On March 5, 2016, our client took a brief rest next to some railroad tracks after losing her friends during a night out. Minutes later, train operators spotted her unmoving body on the tracks, identifying her as a person. Despite the life-threatening consequences an impact would have, the train operators didn’t stop or even slow down the train. As a result, our client suffered life-changing harm.

After seven years of delays, Union Pacific was forced to finally meet us in court. Because our firm proved the train operators might have avoided impact with our client, the jury awarded her a historic $557 million verdict. This money will go toward ensuring she gets the medical care and financial security she needs.

Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $0.00.

The defendants included transportation companies and a national supermarket chain, who had all failed to adhere to their own company policies. This negligence on their part put our client in a perilous position. We are proud to have gotten him compensation to help with his recovery and rebuilding his life.
