Reuters has reported that a 39 year old Metro-North passenger who was paralyzed as a result of the December 1, 2013 crash has sued for $100,000,000.00. Samuel Rivera, an employee of Metro-North, who was off-duty at the time of the incident, was left a quadriplegic. His doctors feel that his condition is permanent and it is unlikely that he will ever regain the ability to move his limbs. Rivera’s lawsuit is the seventh resulting from the crash.
