Philadelphia Amtrak Train Accident

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in amtrak train crash, Philadelphia Amtrak Crash

Philadelphia  Class Action Lawyer Network Amtrak Train Accident Lawyers

An  Amtrak train  crashed in Philadelphia, killing at least seven people. The train  was moving at 106 mph before it ran off the rails along a sharp curve where the speed limit is just 50 mph. Catastrophic accidents such as this cause serious injuries and death to passengers. Our train accident attorneys are ready to hold the Amtrak company  accountable for the extreme negligence on their part that caused injury to innocent victims.

 The Details Of The Philadelphia Amtrak  Crash Are Astonishing

Apparently the  engineer applied the emergency brakes moments before the crash but managed to slow the train to only 102 mph by the time the locomotive’s black box stopped recording data.  The speed limit just before the bend is 80 mph. The engineer, whose name was not released, refused to give a statement to law enforcement and left a police precinct with a lawyer. Sumwalt said federal accident investigators hope to interview him but will give him a day or two to recover from the “traumatic event.” “Our mission is to find out not only what happened but why it happened, so that we can prevent it from happening again,” Sumwalt said.

Passengers Injured

More than 200 people aboard the Washington-to-New York train were injured in the wreck, which took place in a decayed industrial neighborhood not far from the Delaware River just before 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. Passengers crawled out the windows of the torn and toppled rail cars in the darkness and emerged, dazed and bloody, in the nation’s deadliest train accident in nearly seven years. “We are heartbroken by what has happened here,” Mayor Michael Nutter said.

5  Are Reported Dead in Train Wreck

Amtrak suspended all service until further notice along the Philadelphia-to-New York stretch of the nation’s busiest rail corridor — snarling the morning commute and forcing thousands to find some other way to reach their destination — as investigators examined the wreckage and the tracks and gathered up other evidence. The dead included an AP employee and a midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy. Many of the injured suffered broken bones or burns. At least 10 remained hospitalized in critical condition.

Catastrophic Train Accident

Nutter said some people remained unaccounted for, though he cautioned that some passengers listed on the Amtrak manifest might not have boarded the train, while others might not have checked in with authorities. This is a catastrophic event and we understand the first thing families want to do is locate their loved one’s. A catastrophic accident like this is akin to an airplane crash and victims are feeling the physical and emotional shock of such an event right now. Our prayers are with you. You will be solicited by attorneys and you must make the right decision to protect your rights and the rights of your loved one who has been injured. You must be sure you get the medical help you need right now. When many people are injured in the same way they become a class.

FELA Lawyer- Train Accident Attorneys

This is not a simple legal matter. If you were are an injured railroad  employee you need an experienced FELA attorney. You need an attorney that understands the transportation industry. We suggest you speak to no representatives from Amtrak and accept no offers or say anything. The company is not on your side nor are their insurance providers. If you or a loved one has been injured in this catastrophic event or you have lost a loved one contact us immediately. Boston, New Haven, New York,Philadelphia,Baltimore, Washington, DC,
