Victims of the Midland train tragedy that has killed four veterans and injured over a dozen more are taking the important step of seeking legal representation to make sure their rights are preserved. Bob Pottroff of Pottroff & Karlin, LLC has been retained by several victims to investigate the tragedy and bring justice to the victims and their familes. Bob Pottroff is a nationally renowned attorney who, over the past 30 years, has focused his practice on successfully advocating for railroad crossing accident victims.
Since the tragedy, Bob Pottroff has held press conferences on national and local television to help tell some of the victims’ stories and inform the public about possible deficiencies at the crossing. His hope is that the NTSB investigation and his own investigation will lead to the truth about the various factors that could have lead to the tragedy.
Among other factors, Bob Pottroff is looking into whether the designed warning time by the light and gate system at the crossing was violated.
While this tragedy occurred almost a week ago, the pain and loss the victims and their families are suffering will last a lifetime. Simply put, Pottroff said, "this tragedy should have never happened."
