Cavanagh Law Group attorneys have prosecuted numerous cases against railroad conglomerate Canadian National / Illinois Central Railway Company (CNIC). Cavanagh Law Group attorney Timothy J. Cavanagh earned a $9.1 million settlement for a client who was injured in a railroad grade crossing collision in Bloomingdale, Illinois. In that case, a Canadian National / Illinois Central Railway train sped through a grade crossing and collided with the Plaintiff’s car when the gate at the crossing had previously been knocked down.
In another case, Cavanagh Law Group attorneys Timothy J. Cavanagh and Matthew M. Rundio represented Plaintiffs in a case where the jury awarded $55 million in damages. The Plaintiffs suffered traumatic brain injuries and other injuries when a Canadian National / Illinois Central Railway Company train hit the vehicle in which they were passengers at a railroad crossing in Bloomingdale, Illinois.
Cavanagh Law Group is also representing several victims of the Amtrak derailment that occurred on the south side of Chicago in November 2007. The Amtrak train derailed when it was traveling too fast and rear-ended a slower moving freight train in a speed-restricted area.
