$7 Million Settlement for Woman Hit by Passenger Train in West Palm Beach

Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey, & Fronrath just secured a $7-million settlement for Tairia Lee. She was crossing the railroad tracks on 25th Street in West Palm Beach when a passenger train slammed into her car without warning. Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey, & Fronrath was able to prove that the crossing gates and lights failed to activate due to neglectful maintenance.

Firm partner, Lake H. “Trey” Lytal and his investigative team, fought hard for three years to ensure Ms. Lee would get the settlement that she deserved after the devastating collision. Cases involving any type of train accidents are known to be the most difficult to litigate. For most law firms, this type of investigation would take a monumental toll, but Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey, & Fronrath are uniquely prepared for comprehensive investigations and, if necessary, a long term fight to stand up for the rights of the victim.

The name of the passenger train involved in the incident can not be disclosed due to the settlement agreement. However, the large settlement means Ms. Lee will have the funds to help her for the rest of her life.
