Metrolink California Train Wreck: Los Angeles Attorney Ron Gabler, Encino, California - Press Release (Traverse Legal, PLC, Of Counsel): "As a member of the Los Angeles, California Legal Community and the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles, and on behalf of the attorneys and staff of Traverse Legal, I wish to offer my heartfelt sympathy to the victims and families and friends of those injured and those whose family members passed away in the tragic Metrolink Accident that occurred on September 12, 2008 in Chatsworth."
Los Angeles is a city where alternative means of transportation from the automobile and the gridlock of the freeways have been sought for decades. The Metrolink commuter trains have been a welcome respite for suburban commuters in areas such as Moorpark, Simi Valley and Thousand Oaks, where most of the Metrolink train accident injured and deceased resided. The ability to commute to and from work and relax, read the paper, catch up on reading a good book or just unwind from the day's stresses were taken for granted, until last week when a Metrolink train collided with a freight train in an accident, that was due primarily to human error, the negligence of the Metrolink conductor, and clearly could have easily been avoided had certain steps been taken to follow policies and procedures and available safety devices been utilized.

The result of this tragedy has changed life as the victims and their families and friends knew it before last Friday. In my role as Of Counsel to Traverse Legal, I have recently been involved in successful mass litigation for serious injury accident victims in the Crown Princess Listing Incident in which a cruise ship was negligently allowed to tilt to such a degree that passengers felt they were on the Titanic. Many injuries resulted including the death of one of the passengers. In cooperation with Traverse Legal, we have represented 47 victims of the Crown Princess disaster in Los Angeles, California County Superior Court, mass tort division, I am continually impressed with their sensitivity, professionalism and constant communication and interaction with their clients whic his why I joined Traverse Legal in an 'of cousnel' capacity. The Traverse Legal team will represent Metrolink clients with the same aggressive and compassionate approach for which we are known.
The compensation sought in this matter for the victims and their families and/or heirs will not reverse the unnecessary infliction of emotional damage and loss that has been and will continue to be undergone, but it will in its own way assist in the healing process and keep in the public's awareness the need to prevent such a tragedy from occurring in the future.
