The Excessive Train Gap
Insufficient Platform Gap Filler
Federal standards indicate safety and rules regarding platform gaps between the platform and the entrance of a train. WMSC investigated a case with an excessive train gap that caused the Plaintiff to fall between the platform and the train car and sustain serious injuries. Our experts found major violations, including excessive gapping and notice of condition. The Defendant in this case had installed an insufficient platform gap filler that did little to nothing to fix the issue at hand.
