Sandor insisted that he ended up on the tracks as he had stepped on a shard of glass that caused him to fall in front of the moving train.

He also claimed he had been financially advised to take the fourteen insurance policies out prior to the incident.

“I find the ruling very peculiar. Naturally, it isn’t what I expected. I am disappointed,” he said.

“I need to see this through to the end because, as is, this is not right, and the court must feel the same way.”

Since the incident, Sandor has been using prosthetic limbs and a wheelchair after his legs were amputated to the knee.

These paired with medical bills and the loss of his job has made Sandor’s financial situation pretty bad and it doesn’t seem like he will be getting a payout to make it any better.

And, on top of that, he has been ordered to pay $6,326 in legal costs.

Big yikes.
