The thing that makes this story even more tragic is that the accident was caused by distracted driving. If the driver of the train had not been texting while driving, the horrific accident would not have occurred. We need laws which would ban distracted driving.

It seems to me that in limiting the amount by which victims can be reimbursed regardless of their actual damages, these caps amount to unconstitutional takings. Can anyone point me to where that argument might have been made and how it has fared?

Check out Veolia's website and their values. "WE CARE". Hypocrites!

An absolutely appalling story. The aftermath is still making painful ripples in the lives of the victims and their families. Check out my write up on the story and tort reform (http://bit.ly/naGRFY)
