Severely Injured Virginia Couple Files Suit against Amtrak and the Train Engineer
Jun 16 15
Couple injured in the Amtrak 188 regional train derailment have filed a lawsuit in federal court against Amtrak and the train engineer. They have hired Fredric Eisenberg of the Philadelphia law firm Eisenberg, Rothweiler, Winkler, Eisenberg & Jeck, P.C. to represent them. Newlyweds Declan MacFarland and his wife Kathryn Varnum were living in Virginia and in the process of relocating to New York City to begin their life together in an apartment they had recently agreed to lease. On May 12, they were travelling aboard Amtrak 188 so that Declan and Kathryn could attend job and client interviews scheduled for the following day. At approximately 9:20 p.m., the couple sensed that the train was entering a curve much too fast. They were suddenly thrown about inside the car as it left the track and turned on its side. Kathryn suffered multiple pelvic, hip and spinal fractures; Declan sustained a concussion, brain injury and head contusions. The couple were taken to Temple University Hospital where Kathryn had multiple surgeries, critical hospital care and acute inpatient rehabilitation. The full extent of their injuries is still being determined.
Amtrak Employee Files Lawsuit Against Amtrak over the Deadly Train Derailment
May 17 15
An Amtrak employee filed a lawsuit over the deadly train derailment that left eight people dead and hundreds injured. The violent crash of Amtrak train 188 killed eight people, caused the hospitalization of more than 200 others, and affected transportation and businesses along the Northeast corridor for days. Philadelphia police obtained a search warrant for the cell phone records of Brandon Bostian, the train's engineer, who allegedly sped up before entering the Frankford Junction turn -- hitting 106 mph before hitting the emergency brake. Amtrak worker, Bruce Phillips, and his wife, Kalita, filed a lawsuit against Amtrak, likely the first of many the company will face. Personal injury lawyers expect litigation over the derailment to amount to hundreds of millions of dollars in claims, however, an act limits payouts to victims of Amtrak derailments and their families to $200 million per crash.
