According to the latest news in a string of lawsuits against Amtrak, four more lawsuits were filed against the company, bringing the total to 15 lawsuits. The allegations made in the lawsuits suggest Amtrak used a bad rail crossing signal that failed to warn motorists, which led to an accident where four people died and over 100 people were injured.
Amtrak is probably one of the most popular transportation vehicles people use to get around the country. There have often been crashes and accidents where people have sued and won for a variety of reasons. Amtrak is a catch 22 of sorts- its extensive usage makes it a target for lawsuits.
