The questions continue to mount along with rider anxiety.
"Lets hope that here we don't wait a year for the NTSB, like we did in Amtrak 188, only to be given an unsupported, debunked explanation promoted as "situational unawareness" by a speeding locomotive operator. The NTSB needs to start to ask probing and difficult questions now to get to the bottom of what happened in this latest tragedy." said Mr. Kline (of Kline & Specter, P.C.). "The combination of already known facts-the train was six minutes late, reports of passengers of excessive speed and the extensive damage to the station raise a high index of suspicion that the train was being operated at an unsafe speed. Speed kills-and Positive Train Control prevents speeding accidents and saves lives." stated Mr. Mongeluzzi, of Saltz, Mongeluzzi, Barrett & Bendesky, P.C.
The two Philadelphia law firms were the first to file complaints on behalf of passengers in the May 12, 2015 Amtrak Train No. 188 fatal derailment, and also represent one of the victims of the April 3, 2016 Amtrak Train No. 89 crash that killed two Amtrak track workers near Chester, Pennsylvania.
