HARRISBURG — An individual is suing the National Railroad Passenger Corporation, also known as Amtrak, for allegedly taking insufficient measures to prevent injuries.

Karen Robinson filed a complaint on an unknown date in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendant failed to maintain its station's platform in a safe condition.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was injured at the Harrisburg Amtrak train station on Nov. 30, 2016 when she allegedly slipped on the platform and fell into the gap between the train and the platform. She claims that she suffered severe injuries as a result of the incident. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly failing to provide a safe walkway so that passengers could safely access the train.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in excess of $75,000, plus court costs, interest and any other just and reasonable remedies. She is represented by Gerard J. Martillotti of Jerry Martillotti & Associates in Philadelphia.
