Some are calling the recovery of one Denver, Colorado, woman after being hit by a train nothing short of a miracle. An article released by 9 News says that in the two months since her accident, the young lady has overcome two brain surgeries, a tracheotomy, a stroke, and pneumonia.
It was a Friday afternoon in November of last year when the young woman left her house to walk to work. She was listening to music on headphones as she walked past the Denver Center for Performing Arts. She paused to let a train pass and continued across the tracks, as there was no warning signal or cross arms down. She never heard the train coming in the opposite direction and was hit.
She spent the next several months fighting for her life at Denver Health Medical Center. The woman has shown improvements that are stunning doctors and her family. She is now fully conscious, following commands, and moving her own limbs. She can even sit up and read on her own.
Doctors say she will soon be moved to a rehabilitation center to continue the process of recovery.
The Denver personal injury lawyers with the McDivitt Law Firm would like to wish this woman the best of luck on her journey to a swift recovery. If you have been injured in a train accident, contact an experienced attorney today for help in getting the compensation you need.
