Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
I am sorry to hear about what you went through . If you were assaulted/battered by the employee on the train, you do have a legal basis to file a civil lawsuit and go after her criminally. If you want to see her charged, you can and should go to the police and file a report. I am inclined to believe there is video of the incident, so thy should be able to verify your story. Now, as far as a civil cause of action, if you were damaged or injured, you can not only sue her but have a cause of action and claim against Amtrak, since she was working and in the scope of her employment, when this happened.
Then it would be best to consult with a personal injury attorney and see if they can represent you and if they think you have a valid cause of action against the company, as a result of being assaulted by one of their employees.
