OSSINING, N.Y. -- An Ossining man who was paralyzed from a spinal cord injury he suffered in the Dec. 1, 2013 Metro-North train derailment in the Bronx is planning to announce a lawsuit against the railroad on Wednesday, according to LoHud.com.

Samuel Rivera, a Metro-North employee, was reportedly rendered quadriplegic from injuries suffered in the crash and has spent the last three months at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in White Plains.

Rivera will hold a news conference with his attorney at the hospital.

So far, Metro-North has received seven lawsuits and 80 notices of claim, which are precursors to lawsuits, in regards to the December crash, according to the article.
