Amtrak faces personal injury claims from train accident victims

Posted on Tuesday, May 19th, 2015 at 2:11 pm    

The National Railroad Passenger Corp., doing business as Amtrak, is facing many personal injury lawsuits that could cost hundreds of millions of dollars after the derailment of its train at Frankford Junction in Philadelphia, philly.com reported on May 14.

The accident occurred not far from the Delaware River at around 9:30 p.m.; eight people were killed and many others seriously injured.

Because of the Amtrak Reform and Accountability Act of 1997 which restricted government compensation to victims and families of victims to $200 million per crash, the compensation payments will likely fall short of what is necessary.
