The attorney shepherding through bankruptcy the Maine railway blamed for one of the worst rail disasters in Canadian history hopes to start getting victims some monetary compensation early next year, he said Thursday.
“It really is the logical next step after the sale of the assets,” attorney Robert Keach said of the possible settlement efforts. “The discussions around that … don’t await the bankruptcy sale.”
The discussions with the victims actually began within a few weeks of the bankruptcy filing that stemmed from the July 6 disaster, in which an unmanned Montreal, Maine and Atlantic Railway train slammed into the center of Lac Megantic, Quebec, and exploded, killing 47 people and destroying the center of the town.
