At least six personal injury lawsuits have been filed since the March 24, 2014 commuter train derailment at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. The derailment propelled the train up an escalator where it came to rest. Although the platform was deserted at the time, more than 30 passengers on the train were injured.
Of the claims filed, a single mother of a 1-year-old says she still suffers from lower back and hip injury, and is unable to work. Another plaintiff claims she suffered neck and head injuries and a broken foot. The suits allege conductor error, excessive speed, and/or faulty brakes.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigated the incident and believe the train operator was suffering from fatigue after working a string of overtime shifts. Additionally, the emergency brakes and bumper at the end of the tracks failed to stop the train. The operator allegedly admitted that she fell asleep before the accident.
Lawsuits are often the only way for individuals to recover financial damages. It will undoubtedly be a long time before a full investigation is complete and settlements are reached.
