San Antonio, Texas (April 29, 2020) – A man was injured Tuesday morning after a train ran over his hand in San Antonio, a local news source reported.

The accident took place at about 7:30 a.m. April 28, in the area of Dimmit Street and South Presa Street.

Police said the man was lying on the railroad tracks, and the engineer of an oncoming train tried to alert him by blowing the horn and braking.

An investigation into the crash is underway.

We wish the injured victim a quick recovery.

“When a person has suffered a grave personal injury in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, the most overwhelming emotion they feel is a sense of injustice. They often ask how such a life-altering event could have happened to them,” attorney Joel A. Gordon said. “The next question usually is, who can help me?” Mr. Gordon added.

A legal advocate can represent an injury victim. The attorney will file a claim on behalf of the victim and will have the responsibility of citing existing codes, laws or statues which were violated.
