Confidential v. Metra


Railroad Accidents

On June 1, 2017, Tim Cavanagh and Michael Sorich secured a $7.5 million settlement on behalf of a woman against Metra for traumatic injuries caused from a passing commuter train.

In October 2011, the plaintiff arrived at the Metra Electric District Line 87th Street flag-stop station to wait for her train. Trains do not stop at this location unless the conductor sees a passenger waiting to board. Because of track construction, the plaintiff’s train was rerouted and required special boarding instructions that asked passengers to wait in a specific area that was supposed to be secured by a chain.

Metra did not properly secure the special boarding area with the chain and as a result, the plaintiff was forced to wait to for the train in a dangerous area in order to be seen by the conductor. The plaintiff suffered grievous injuries when she was struck by the passing Metra train.
