Amtrak Train 188, carrying 238 passengers and five crew members bound to New York from Washington, derailed in the Port Richmond area of Philadelphia on the night of May 12, 2015. Eight people died from injuries sustained in the accident, and more than 200 were injured, many of them seriously.

Federal investigators are now trying to determine what caused the accident.

Ross Feller Casey is representing one of the victims – a New York physician who suffered a potentially career-ending injury to her leg. The firm recently filed a lawsuit on her behalf and is investigating other potential individual claims.

Although traveling by rail is believed to be one of the safest forms of transportation, more than 2,500 train accidents occur across the nation each year. In 2013 alone, nearly 900 people died as a result of those accidents, according to government statistics.
