Yes sometimes they win but contact a firm that handles these matters - you are suffering online and should call a lawyer tomorrow.
I suggest Joe Cullen, Esq. Of Stark and Stark - he will give you a very accurate review.
I’m so sorry for your loss.

It depends. You have to prove some kind of liability on the conductor and the train company.
Just saying the conductor saw him and did not slow down is not enough to go on.
Contact a personal injury attorney in your area for your grandson (or if he has parents who are living, they should do so). Use the "Find a lawyer" link for the names of some attorneys in your area.
